Doctors in Training and Students
The practice usually has Specialist Trainees in General Practice. This is a doctor who has completed a series of hospital jobs and is training to become a fully qualified general practitioner. The practice is also involved with the University of Glasgow Department of General Practice. Medical students visit the practice for teaching purposes on a regular basis. You may be asked to help us in our teaching by allowing students to be present during your consultation, to visit you in your home or allowing consultations to be video recorded for teaching purposes.
Your co-operation in this would be appreciated, but you are free to decline to take part if you wish.

Receptionists make most of the patient appointments with the GPs and nurses. They also perform other important tasks such as issuing repeat prescriptions and dealing with prescription enquiries, dealing with financial claims, dealing with patient records and carrying out searches and practice audits.

ANP - Advance Nurse Practitioner.
Nurse Kerry Donoghue
An Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANP) is an experienced and highly educated Registered Nurse who manages the complete clinical care for their patient, not solely any specific condition. Advanced practice is a level of practice, rather than a type or speciality of practice.
ANPS are assessed in advance level as competent in this level of practice. As a clinical leader they have the freedom and authority to act and accept the responsibility and accountability for those actions. This level of practice is characterised by high level autonomous decision making, including assessment, diagnosis, treatment including prescribing, of patients with complex, multi-dimensional problems. Decisions are made using high level expert, knowledge and skills. This includes the authority to refer, admit and discharge within appropriate clinical areas. The ANP consults currently all day on a Friday and if it is felt that on the day she is the best person to see you will be given an appointment for her.
