We have 7 GP Partners attached to Tayview Medical Practice. Details of each partner, and their interests, can be found below.
We are also fortunate to have medical students attached to our practice for short periods. With the patient's consent, they may also consult with the GP and learn about general practice.
At times, such as when a doctor is on annual leave, the Practice will use a locum doctor in order to assist the Practice. Locum doctors are fully qualified general practitioners and have been fully certified by NHS health boards to enable them to locum at practices.
Our Practice Nursing team is experienced in providing you with a wide range of services. Such services include chronic disease management (assisting you with the management of any chronic diseases you may have such as asthma or diabetes), wound dressing, ear syringing, the taking of blood samples, blood pressure checks, travel advice and other vaccinations, cervical screening, pre-school child booster immunisations and health promotion/education.
