Dr Hodegere joined us as senior GP partner in 2019. He worked in the West Midlands Ambulance Service where he was the Medical Director providing medical leadership and clinical direction to the Trust Board. Dr Hodegere has a varied NHS career starting as an Anaethetist in 2004 before moving through various surgical specialities and emergency medicine before joining general practice. He has worked as a GP since 2012 and been in management in the primary care setting for the past 5 years.
Dr Pooley has previously worked as a partner and as a locum, and has joined the practice in 2020 as a salaried doctor. He enjoys all areas of medicine but has a special interest in the relationship between psychology and health, emergency medicine, and musculoskeletal medicine.
Outside of the practice, he trains doctors how to communicate more effectively and enjoys reading, graphic design, and computer programming.
Healthcare assistants support practice nurses with their daily work and carry out tasks such as phlebotomy (drawing blood), blood pressure measurement and new patient checks. They may act as a chaperone when a patient or doctor requests one.
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.
Their role can be very demanding at times and your patience is very much appreciated
