Our GP partners are supported by two regular locum GPs: Dr Jonathan Glover and Dr Vivek Singh.
Practice Nurses are registered nurses who have had extra training to meet the needs of most health issues in primary care. This includes providing a triage service for urgent appointments, assessing and treating minor illnesses, managing of chronic diseases such as Asthma, Diabetes and COPD, taking smears, wound care, travel advice, vaccinations and healthy lifestyle advice.
Our Healthcare Assistants support practice nurses with their daily work and carry out tasks such as ECGs, blood pressure, certain vaccinations (e.g. B12s and flus), ear syringing (following nurse assessment) and compression bandaging (following nurse assessment). They are also qualified to carry out NHS Health Checks, and to give stop smoking advice and guidance. They may act as a chaperone when a patient or doctor requests one.
Our phlebotomist focuses on taking blood samples, which underpin so much of diagnosis and subsequent treatment. Blood samples have to be taken in the morning so that they can be collected in the afternoons and sent off to the lab for analysis.
The practice manager oversees the organisation and running of the practice, and manages the practice's finances. Any problems or queries that cannot be dealt with by one of the reception or prescription team should be referred to him.
The receptionists are here to help you and play an important part in the smooth running of the practice. They have been asked by the doctors to request the nature of your problem when making appointments so that appropriate action can be taken. All staff are bound by the same rules of confidentiality as the doctors. Our Managing Receptionist, Diane Shepherd, will be pleased to help with any queries or concerns about the reception team.
The community midwife works with the doctors to look after mothers before and after delivery, and advise on the care of the newborn baby. Our current community midwife is Fiona Chinneck. Please get contact details from reception.
Health Visitor: (Tel. 01672 517235) The health visitor visits all families with children under 5 years old. She also provides information, advice and support to all age groups, particularly at times of physical or emotional stress, but with special emphasis on the needs of young children.
Maggie Bell - Our Care Coordinator works alongside the doctors, community team and Social Services to ensure our frail elderly patients receive the best care possible.
