They provide 'same day' appointments and are able to prescribe medications, diagnose, treat and refer. Please note they are not able to issue sickness certificates.

If you wish to discuss administrative or non medical aspects of your health treatment or if you have any ideas which will improve the services we provide, our Practice Managers may be able to help you.
The Assistent Practice Manager deals with problems or complaints you may have to do with the practice.
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 by using care navigation. They also perform other important tasks such as registering new patients, repeat prescriptions and dealing with prescription enquiries, dealing with financial claims, dealing with patient records and carrying out searches and practice audits.
Should you have any problems with a referral please contact the surgery and ask to speak to the Senior Receptionist
Patient Services Manager
If you have a problem or a complaint please ask to speak to Laura Cadman who will be willing to help.
Rising Brook Surgery has been accredited by Keele University School of Medicine as a Teaching Practice.
Rising Brook Surgery has been accredited by Keele University School of Medicine as a Teaching Practice for Medical Students. Their general practice experience is an essential part of their learning and we are grateful to our patients who may be consulted by a student prior to being reviewed by one of the GPs. Medical students spend four weeks in General Practice during each year of their training.
Foundation Year 2 Doctors
Junior doctors working at Rising Brook Surgery have graduated from university with a medical degree and are in the second year of the Foundation Programme, this is a time when they develop their knowledge and skills. Junior doctors rotate through General Practice (every 4 months) in the same way they rotate through hospital specialities such as gynaecology, paediatrics and psychiatry.
They are qualified doctors and will be registered with the General Medical Council.
Junior doctors have a longer time for their appointments, typically 20 minutes in duration. An appointment with a junior doctor is always under the supervision of a senior doctor at the Practice.
If you are scheduled to be seen by a student or junior doctor but would rather not see them for personal reasons please let a member of staff know beforehand and your request will be respected.
We wish to thank our patients for your support and patience with resident students and junior doctors.
