Julia Connor RGN & Trish Sanders RGN
Atholl Medical Centre employs Julia Connor as Nurse Practitioner and a recent addition of Trish Sanders. Julia & Trish triage and see patients in the surgery every day. When phoning for an appointment, you will be put into the triage system and Julia or Trish will phone you back and either give advice, arrange an appointment with themselves or allocate you an appointment with a GP. Patients with ongoing medical problems will be offered an appointment with their usual GP where possible. We are confident that this will reduce waiting times for our patients. We know that our patients will appreciate the friendly manner and expertise that Julia & Trish bring to the practice.
