      There’s many different people within our building: Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, Midwives, Counsellors, Healthcare Assistants, Reception staff, Secretaries, Administrative Staff, Managers, Cleaners and even Man Utd fans!
      It’s a work family of many ages and predominantly female, and this involves skills of give and take, communication and compassion.

      We do a lot of work understanding personality type and what makes each person tick, and what really gets their head in a spin; this helps to ensure we do our best to make doing the job as rewarding as possible, as it’s very busy and the workload is high. Looking after each other as well as patients is really important.

      A variety of people that what’s makes it a great team. Everyone has different skills and you have to value each and everyone. Know general practice would survive if you only had people with the same skills, background and job title.

      I work directly with staff as opposed to patients, so I work with nurses, practice managers, gp’s, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, physiotherapists and pharmacists. They’re all passionate about their area of work and trying to help others be the best they can in their roles
