Practice Management

Mr Johan Taylor (m)



After training in law, followed by roles in management, sales and marketing, I joined Marple Cottage Surgery in 2003. 

As Managing Partner my role involves managing the smooth running of the practice, ensuring that we provide an excellent clinical service for all our patients, whilst providing strategic and business direction for the ongoing development of the practice.

I am also a Non-Executive Director of Viaduct Care CIC, the GP Federation for Stockport.

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.
