Emma is our Advanced Nurse Practitioner and Nursing Team Lead.
The Practice nursing team run surgeries by appointment in the mornings and afternoons. Their responsibilities include:
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.
The Practice manager is responsible for the general management of the surgery. She is supported by a team of staff which includes receptionists, medical secretaries and administrative staff, all of whom work extremely hard to ensure the smooth and efficient running of the practice.
Deputy Practice Manager
Our team of fully trained receptionists are there to help you make appointments to see the doctors and nurses or to advise on administrative and registration problems. They have a difficult job to do with telephone calls and enquiries coming from every direction. When you telephone for medical attention, the receptionist may need to ask one or two questions in order to prioritise your request and direct you to the appropriate person – GP, Nurse, Health Visitor, etc. They have been asked to do this, but the information you give them will be treated in confidence as they are bound by the same rules of confidentiality as doctors and nurses. If they cannot answer a query, they will undertake to find someone else who can.
The community nursing team provides a wide range of nursing care and support to patients at home who are physically unable to attend the surgery and / or have a serious illness or disability. Main areas of care include wound care, hospital discharge assessments, palliative and bereavement care, cancer care and support and continence care and advice.
The community nursing team has an open referral system. Appropriateness of referrals would be assessed via telephone prior to a home visit. The team can be contacted Monday to Friday 08.30 – 5pm on 01202 738812. Please note there is no answer machine. Messages can be left via the reception staff on the main surgery number.
Three physiotherapy sessions are available during the week; Tuesday afternoons and all day Thursday. This is by GP referral only.
