Our Team

General Practice has grown and changed a lot in the last 10 years; it is now much more than GPs and nurses. We are proud that #TeamPMG are made up of a broad multi-disciplinary clinical team and a number of supporting non-clinical teams. Our clinical team is made up of a number of different clinicians with varied expertise and experience and we want our patients to be seen by the right clinician, in the right time frame.

Whichever way you contact us; online using the prioryCARE form, by phone or at one of our reception desks, we ask that you provide us with enough information to ensure your problem is directed to an appropriate member of the clinical team. Our Patient Care Navigators (formerly known as Receptionists) and Patient Central team based at our call centre are all highly trained and will ask only necessary questions that will help us manage your clinical problem in the safest way.

We are a training practice; this means you might meet HYMS undergraduate medical students and training postgraduate clinicians across our sites. Our experienced clinical staff members provide close supervision to any one in training.

A closer look at some of our staff roles:

    MSK specialists are Physiotherapists with advanced skills and are here to help with a range of joint or limb problems. We can help you best if you describe a bit about the problem to our call handler or on our online system.

    You can choose “back, bone, joint, muscle problem” tile on the prioryCARE form to send an MSK request.

    It’s useful to know how and when it started (for example, pulled thigh muscle gardening 2 weeks ago) and if you’ve ever had this problem before.

    The prescription admin team deal with prescription requests and queries.

    We often get asked how long it takes for queries to be addressed; it is important to be aware that it can take up to 7 days to review and action a medication query as sometimes our in-house pharmacists need to provide input. Do remember that it can take 48 hours+ for your community pharmacy to process your prescription once we have sent it to them electronically. Allow plenty of time.

    If you request a prescription you will be contacted if there is a problem with it (by text or phone). If you do not hear anything assume it has been issued.

    To help us, it would be great if you could ensure we have your up to date contact details. We often send text messages if you are due a blood test or BP check as part of your medication monitoring.

    Where possible use the NHSapp, prioryCARE form or SystmOnline account to request your prescription.

    Physician Associates (PAs) are healthcare professionals with a generalist medical education. We work alongside doctors and other members of the multidisciplinary team to help diagnose, assess, and care for patients.

    We are dependent practitioners who work under the supervision of a GP but can work independently with the appropriate support.

    The Physician Associate role was introduced to increase numbers of the medical workforce and help reduce the healthcare workload. We work across the different surgeries within Priory Medical Group, and many of us have special interests, these include: Women’s Health, Learning Disabilities, Minor Surgery and Diabetes.

    Rana

    Hi, I am Rana, a GP at Priory Medical Group. I was a GP trainee at Priory and then qualified as a GP in December 2021. Being a newly qualified GP, I have taken on board changing patterns of working with the Covid-19 pandemic. The world is changing in front of us and we, as well as our patients are having to change our practices. This is challenging, as well as exciting.

    Medicine is constantly evolving and I am learning something new every day myself. This is why, you and me both, should be keeping an eye on evidence based medicine for the most up to date guidelines. A general practitioner is expected to know something about everything and this is the beauty of the work I do. A GP is one member of the wider multidisciplinary team and I work as part of teamPMG to ensure that we provide you the best care possible. Outside of work, I like playing cricket, running and have just completed my first Yorkshire marathon!"
