Jade is our Practice Nurse. Jade only moved into practice nursing in January 2018 but she is quickly learning all aspects of the role and has lots of knowledge, skills and experience from her previous nursing roles.

Nurse Lynn Gough

Lynn is our respiratory nurse - you will only see Lynn if you have COPD or Asthma or if one of the GP's wants tests performed in line with respiratory symptoms.

Mrs Patricia Brewin

Healthcare assistants support practice nurses with their daily work and carry out tasks such as phlebotomy (drawing blood), blood pressure measurement and new patient checks. They may act as a chaperone when a patient or doctor requests one.

Admin Team

Rachael Jackson

Other Staff

GP Registrars

As an accredited training practice we often have GP registrars attached to the practice for 6 or 12 months. GP Registrars are fully qualified doctors who are training to be General Practitioners. GP Registrars are closely supervised by the doctors. Your medical care will not be compromised in any way by consulting with a registrar rather than one of the other doctors.


Pharmacists are becoming more common as integral members of the practice team.  Whilst Woodland Road Surgery does not currently employ a pharmacist we frequently have pharmacists from the CCG working with us.  Pharmacists are governed by the same rules of confidentiality as the rest of the practice team.  They have special expertise in medicines that can be of significant benefit to overall patient care.  Patients may find they are contacted by one of these pharmacists on occasion to discuss their treatment, this could be over the telephone, in writing or at a face to face appointment.  If you have any concerns about this element of your care please speak to someone at the practice.

Community Midwives

We currently have a midwife in attendance at the surgery once a week, on a Wednesday afternoon. A midwife deals with pregnant ladies and any issues they may experience during pregnancy.

Health Visitors

A health visitor is a registered nurse who has received training particularly related to babies, children and pregnant women. Their role is to provide families with children under five years old with support and advice around the general aspects of mental, physical and social well-being.

Substance Misuse Worker

Woodland Road Surgery is part of the Birmingham substance misuse treatment project, currently hosted by CGL.  Specialist workers from the service run clinics at the practice offering support, guidance and treatment for those tackling addiction.
