Julie Rowe MCMI 

Julie joined the surgery in January 2021. Julie has worked in Manchester as a Practice Manager in various GP surgeries over the last 21 years. 

The Practice Manager is involved in managing all of the business aspects of the practice such as ensuring the right systems are in place to provide a high quality of patient care, human resources, finance, patient safety, premises and equipment and information technology. The Practice Manager supports the GPs and other medical professionals with delivering patient services and also helps to develop extended services to enhance patient care.


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.

Ramish Ali

Physician Associate

We are pleased to welcome a new clinician to our expanding team.

Ramish Ali is our Physician Associate. She is a medically trained, generalist healthcare professional, who works alongside doctors and provides medical care as an integral part of our multidisciplinary team.

Physician associates are practitioners working with a dedicated medical supervisor but are available to work autonomously with appropriate support.

What Do Physician Associates Do?

Physician associates work within a defined scope of practice and limits of competence. They:

  • take medical histories from patients
  • carry out physical examinations
  • see patients with undifferentiated diagnoses
  • see patients with long-term chronic conditions
  • formulate differential diagnoses and management plans
  • perform diagnostic and therapeutic procedures
  • develop and deliver appropriate treatment and management plans
  • request and interpret diagnostic studies
  • provide health promotion and disease prevention advice for patients.

Currently, physician associates are not able to:

  • prescribe
  • request ionising radiation (e.g., chest x-ray or CT scan).
