Rosemary Emmonds, MMI, Med, B.Ed (Hons), Cert Ed, PG Couns, MAMS, will be able to help you with administrative and non-medical aspects and to discuss any suggestions, comments or complaints.


We hope you find our receptionists friendly and efficient. They have the difficult job of keeping both doctors and patients happy. They are trained Care Navigators; so to enable them to direct you to the appropriate service you will be asked for a brief indication of your illness. All our staff members receive training and appreciate the need to fully protect your confidentiality.
