BMC is delighted to welcome to new clinical members of staff. Paul Walton and Steven Golding are experienced paramedics who join us as Primary Care Practitioners. The Primary Care Practitioners form part of the new ‘Acute Illness Team’ seeing patients newly presenting with minor illness and injury, such as coughs and colds, sore throats, earaches, urine infections, sprains and strains. The ‘Acute Illness Team’ is made up of GPs, nurses and primary care practitioners for patients requiring same-day appointments. You may be spoken to on the telephone by one of the clinicians to decide who is the most appropriate member of the team for you to see.
