Receptionists provide an important link for patients with the practice and are your initial contact point for general enquiries. They can provide basic information on services and results and direct you to the right person depending on your health issue or query. Receptionists make most of the patient appointments with the GPs and nurses. They also perform other important tasks such as issuing repeat prescriptions and dealing with prescription enquiries, dealing with financial claims, dealing with patient records and carrying out searches and practice audits.
Our practice midwife is Julie Holowko. The practice is covered by a team of midwives operating in the Stockport area, which means it might not always be Julie you see when you visit the surgery for your appointment. When you find out that you are pregnant, if you let the surgery know or email Julie directly, she will telephone you to arrange your first appointment to see her at around 10 weeks into your pregnancy.
Julie holds an antenatal clinic once a week at the surgery on Wednesday afternoons. Please make your appointments between 13:30 - 16:30.
