Administrative Team

Romy Stanton
Romy joined us in September 2018 having managed a Practice in South Bristol before coming back to Somerset to work closer to home.

She completed 25 years service in the NHS locally prior to this in a variety of roles including GP Contracts Administrator, Payments Manager, Clinical Governance Manager, KSF & Appraisal Lead before becoming Somerset Partnership's Operational Lead for Mandatory Training!

Romy is a qualified Trainer, Coach and Coach Supervisor and holds a Post Graduate Certificate in Leadership & Management.

The role of the Practice Manager is varied and every day is different.  Romy's ethos is that her role is a fine balance between ensuring patient needs are met and supporting the staff in delivering those needs, whilst making sure the building is safe, equipment is working and staff and invoices are paid on time!

Romy lives in Taunton.  She has 5 children and a slightly bonkers Staffordshire Bull Terrier by the name of Marley!  In her spare time she volunteers for a local Scout Group as a Beaver Scout Leader and spends as much time as possible heading off in her rather dated camper van.
Teresa Griffiths
Teresa joined the practice in July 2017 as a receptionist working her way up to Office Manager from July 2019. As an Office Manager, she oversees the busy day-to-today management of reception and administration. Patients and staff alike say you can often hear the sound of her hurried footsteps echoing throughout the building even when she isn't here...
Teresa lives locally, has 2 children and a dog and enjoys camping by the beach, shopping and spending time in her hot tub.
Harry Clarkson
Harry Clarkson joined in December 2014. He began his role as a Business Administration Apprentice, working his way to a level 3 qualification in this area and up to the role of IT Lead. 
As IT Lead, Harry oversees all IT based systems within the practice, ranging from the essential day-to-day systems to website maintenance. 
Harry spends most of his day asking people to turn devices off and on again. Sometimes he has to show people where the power button is and make sure things are plugged in. It's a taxing role.
In his spare time, Harry is a bit of a film buff and enjoys reading and gaming, being one of those 'streamer' type people when he can.

Chelsea Cudworth-Jones
Chelsea joined in January 2017 as a business administration apprentice, completing the qualification in March 2019 and is currently training for a brand new role, looking to qualify in January 2020 as a General Practitioners Assistant (GPA).
Chelsea’s relentless optimism has gained her a second, unofficial role of Morale Marshal, sheltering us from the gloom of those grey, rainy days.
When she is not in work she expertly juggles two children and studies for her new GPA role.
