Practice Management

Tracy Bowden

Tracy previously worked for British Airways as cabin crew on their fleet of Boeing 747s before joining a training company where she gained the Certificate of Education and was responsible for the training of students from 16 – 60+.

She joined the practice in 1997 after the previous Practice Manager retired. Her job entails the management of finances, human resources, service planning, building maintenance and the unpredictability of the day-to-day running of a busy surgery. 

She is a keen skier and enjoys running and cycling. She completed the Tough Mudder Challenge in 2016 and 2019 as part of the surgery team.



Nichola joined the practice in 2010 as a Receptionist.  Having previous experience in GP Practice and an administrative background in local government she progressed to become the Senior Practice Administrator and more recently Patient Services Manager supporting the GPs and Practice Manager in the running of our busy practice.


Paige joined the surgery in July 2015 as our first Admin Apprentice under the national apprenticeship scheme.  She received training and supervision in all aspects of the running and administration of a busy GP Practice and successfully achieved a BTEC Level 3 qualification in Business Administration. Paige has since progressed in her administration role and deals with the administrative responsibilities as part of the administration team in supporting the running of a busy GP practice.

The team of receptionists aim to offer a friendly and helpful first point of contact with the surgery. They are a very experienced team, with more than 60 years of service between them. They are kept extremely busy dealing with patients on the telephone and at the reception desk along with the requirements of the Doctors, Nurses and other Healthcare Professionals.

In addition to their main duties of answering the telephone and greeting patients at the main reception desk they are also responsible for the issuing of repeat prescriptions, confirming test results, taking messages and dealing with queries, arranging home visits, registering new patients, dealing with the post, and scanning documents.
