The practice has been approved for the training of fully qualified doctors who are pursuing a career in general practice. You may be offered an appointment with our current GP Registrar.
Margaret Sykes and Elaina Shaw are our Practice Nurses and play an important part in monitoring patients with chronic diseases as well as providing appointments for ear syringing, dressings, immunisations, stitch removal and travel advice.
Rachael Pengelly is our Practice Manager and has been with Ilkley & Wharfedale since 2012. Rachael is responsible for the overall organisation of the practice and for managing the staff and budgets, developing business strategy and ensuring the service runs smoothly.
Catherine Chadwick is our Reception Manager and leads the reception team, ensuring an efficient and professional service is provided and creates a focal point of communication between patients, doctors and other medical staff.
The practice also has a dedicated team of Care Navigators/Receptionists, Prescription Administrators and a Medical Secretaries.
The practice works closely with the Leeds University School of Medicine and occasionally we have medical students with us on a general practice placement. We may ask your permission for you to be seen by a student but this is not obligatory and you are free to decline. We believe that involvement in teaching keeps our standards high as well as providing future doctors with first hand experience of life in general practice. We are grateful to you for lending your support to our teaching and hope that you will accept the occasional presence of a medical student or video camera during consultations. Your permission would always be sought in these circumstances but please feel free to refuse if you are uncomfortable with this.
All staff are here to help you so please ask if you have any queries or questions.
Patient information is treated with the utmost confidentiality and is released only in line with the Data Protection Act, the Freedom of Information Act and the Caldicott Guidelines.
We have a page dedicated to explaining how we use and handle your information.
