Advanced Nurse Practitioner & Doctors
Elizabeth has extensive experience of urgent and emergency conditions in children and adults
If you require an immediate appointment, please see Elizabeth first: In your ten minute appointment, she will work with you to efficiently assess if you have an illness requiring rapid attention. In the majority of cases, she will see-and-treat your condition. In other cases, if your condition is more complex, please feel free to ask Elizabeth to liaise with your named GP partner and the team will work together to arrange relevant investigations prior to your appointment with one of the doctors
Sycamore Medical Centre is accredited by the University of Birmingham Medical School as a Teaching Practice
As a patient, we will from time to time request your consent to see a medical student. For this consultation, you will be interviewed by the medical student for approximately twenty minutes. One of the GP partners will then listen to the medical student’s report, ask him or her questions and then talk to you and examine you. At other times, the student doctor will sit in on your consultation with one of the partners. All of our attached medical students are in their final year; they are within a few months of becoming registered doctors, pending successful completion of this final year. We are thankful to our patients for your help in developing new doctors
Please do not book an appointment to see a student doctor if you do no feel comfortable and please do make your wishes clear to our reception team: Your well-being is our priority
