Clinician Timetable

The timetable is to give you an overview of the days GPs and Nurse Practitioners  (NP) usually work, but please be aware that this can change at short noticed due to operational demands.

As 4 branch practice we have a higher ratio of clinicians - for patients than many other practices - this increase in proportion of clinicians is made possible by the income from the dispensaries at Alderton and Orford. 

Dr Crockett is very much full time at the practice. As senior partner a lot of her time is spent in overseeing and continuously developing the clinical delivery of care, plus long-term stragegies and processess necessary to sustain and ensure resillence of our larger rural practice. She is on the clinical executive of the Ipswich and East Suffolk Clinical Commissioning Group, lead trainer for the qualified doctors in GP training and holds clinics for joint injections and long-term contraception.
