Meet the Team

Our Doctors

Dr Simone Elliss (f)

Dr med univ (MD) MRCGP DFSRH

Originally from Graz, Austria, I grew up surrounded by medicine as my father’s GP surgery formed part of our house.It was his enthusiasm and empathy which inspired me to study medicine and become a GP myself.

Shortly after my A Levels I met my now husband, who was studying in Graz on his year abroad from Nottingham University, and after finishing my degree I moved to Nottingham. I completed my junior doctor training in Stoke-on-Trent, after which I trained for several years as a hospital doctor at King’s Mill Hospital.

This was very interesting and provided me with a good knowledge base for General Practice.

Our Practice Team

Mrs Sarah Childs

Practice Manager


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. They also perform other important tasks such as issuing repeat prescriptions and dealing with prescription enquiries, dealing with financial claims, dealing with patient records and carrying out searches and practice audits.
