About the employer

Ash Trees Surgery is a General Practice who currently have over 25,000 registered patients spread over a wide and diverse geographical area. We aim to provide our patients with continuity of care, and to do this we divide our Practice area geographically into three sections (North, Central and South) with each section having its own dedicated group of GPs. Every patient has their own named registered GP. We have a dedicated team of Urgent Care Team GPs that work alongside Advanced Nurse Practitioners, Paramedics, First Contact Physiotherapists and Mental Health Practitioners to deliver ‘on the day’ care for urgent medical issues. For ongoing, chronic or non urgent problems, our three GP teams, working over our six sites, provide a high level of care in all other aspects of health and wellbeing. To support this, we have an extensive team of administrators including patient advisors, clinical coders and secretaries.
