Your GP surgery team is made up of a range of healthcare professionals with the expertise to help you with your health needs.

Often the perception is that patients have to be treated by a doctor; however this is not always the case as doctors within the GP surgery are supported by a specialist team of nurses, healthcare assistants, clinical pharmacists, advanced nurse practitioners, physicians associates and enhanced paramedic practitioners (ECPs).

Physician Assistants

Neil Humber

Emergency Care Practitioner

Paramedic Practitioners or Emergency Care Practitioners carry out home visits and give advice over the phone to patients unable to travel to the surgery.  They can see patients with minor illness and infections at the surgery. ECPs at The Beacon Health Group play a vital role in supporting the doctors to look after our patients receiving palliative care or nearing the end of life.

Ian Lepley

Advanced Nurse Practitioner

Nurse Practitioners are highly-trained professionals and can undertake complex reviews of patients, just like GPs. They can assess symptoms and build a picture of a patient's condition, treat minor health problems, infections, minor injuries and prescribe medication where necessary.

Samantha Marriott

Physicians Associate

Physicians associates are clinically trained, generalist healthcare professionals, who work alongside doctors and provide medical care as an integral part of the multidisciplinary team.  Similar to a GP, they provide medical care to all patients, including diagnosing illness, management of ongoing conditions and analysing test results.  They are able to deal with any age or illness, and have a senior doctor supervisor on hand for advice if needed.
