The Practice policy is to encourage a healthy lifestyle, and our nurses run many of the screening programmes which can help to prevent ill health. If you are invited to attend for such tests, please try to attend, as this can prevent complications in later life. If you want to speak to a practice nurse ring 0345 337 9922 and the receptionist will be glad to put you through or arrange a suitable time for you to call back.
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.
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.
The district nurses provide care for those discharged from hospital and those who require home care. Their multifunctional role includes health promotion, teaching, rehabilitation and palliative care. In consultation with the doctors, they can also refer patients to other community services such as physiotherapy and chiropody if required.
