Our Staff

Doctors

Dr Wendy Reeves

I joined the practice in 1991, one week before we moved to the current building. I qualified at the University of Sheffield. In the practice I continue to enjoy consultations and I am usually available to see patients on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays and Saturday mornings on a rota. In addition to normal consultation work I carry out joint injections and some minor surgery. I am also involved in the management of the Medical Centre with Sarah Botherway, the Practice Manager. This includes being the registered manager with the Care Quality Commission, meeting quarterly with our Patient Participation Group and being on the board of our Primary Care Network. I have been a GP trainer at the practice since 2003. This has the benefit of bringing young GPs to the surgery and supervising their training increases the knowledge of all the doctors at the Medical Centre. I also mentor new GP trainers and have in the past been a Training Programme Director for the Harrogate GP training scheme. In my spare time I enjoy exercise as it makes me feel well. I regularly run, swim, cycle, walk and do pilates. I take part in triathlons and I am a member of both the Tadcaster Triathlon Club and Wetherby Runners. Exercise has so many benefits that I have encouraged this by linking the practice with the Wetherby Park Run (a free 5k run or walk every Saturday morning) where I volunteer when I can. I have also facilitated the setting up of the 'Walking for Health' walks in Tadcaster.

Dr Katy Turton

I qualified from Leeds University School of Medicine in 1994 and completed my GP training in hospitals and practices around the Yorkshire region. I joined the practice in August 1998 as a three quarter time partner and now work four sessions a week. My medical interests include women's, teenage and children's issues. Dr Turton is usually available on a Monday, Wednesday and Thursday.

Dr Kate Langridge

I completed my medical degree in Leicester and graduated in 1999. I have worked in hospital medicine for several years and obtained my MRCGP before finally training as a GP in the York region. I have been a partner at Tadcaster since 2005. Dr Langridge usually sees patients on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday.

Dr Alison Pitt

I qualified in 1997 from University College London. I initially trained in paediatrics in London, Oxford and Bristol before training as a GP in York. I have been a partner at Tadcaster since 2005. Dr Pitt is not usually available to see patients on a Monday.

Reception

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.
