Administration and Reception Staff
The partners employ two medical secretaries and six medical receptionists who are fully trained to deal with your needs. They make appointments, take messages, arrange repeat prescriptions, book home visits and inform patients of test results, where appropriate, when the doctors have seen and approved them. In order to obtain the best possible service they may sometimes need to judge the urgency of your request by asking a few questions. Please rest assured that the rules of confidentiality apply to all practice staff.
We have three trained dispensers who will be happy to help you with any queries you have with regard to your medication.
Our nursing team comprises a Nurse Practitioner, a Practice Nurse and two Health Care Technicians.
The Nurse Practitioner can deal with a range of minor ailments and can prescribe.
The practice nurse is trained in providing chronic disease management, well person checks, childhood immunisation, travel vaccinations, ear syringing, wart removal, stitch removal, dressings, injections, cervical smears and minor surgery in conjunction with the doctors.
The healthcare technicians performs blood pressure monitoring, blood tests, ECGs, ear syringing and lung function tests.
We have a community midwife attached to the practice. She looks after all pregnant ladies and visits newborn babies at home. An antenatal clinic is held weekly at the surgery.
