Paramedic

Paramedic

We have a Paramedic who works alongside our GPs and Nurses to diagnose and treat Minor illnesses. They are highly qualified and experienced and provide in depth knowledge of a full range of Minor Illnesses.

GP Training

The Cross Keys Practice is a training practice, meaning that we take doctors who have been working in hospitals and train them to be GPs. The job title of the training doctor is 'GP Registrar'. Dr Neale is our GP Trainer, but all of the practice team are involved in the training to some extent.

We sometimes also have medical students in the practice who are gaining experience of a whole variety of doctors' jobs.

On occasion, there might be a doctor or student in on your consultation; this is an important part of GP training. You will always be warned about this before you go in. If you would rather not have someone else sitting in then you have the choice to ask the learner to sit outside for the consultation, or to re-book.
