The Practice is very fortunate to have a highly competent and dedicated Nursing Team made up of two qualified Practice Nurses, a Health Care Assistant and a Nurse Care Co-ordinator.
Our Practice Nurses - Rina, Shelley and Jo - can help with health issues such as family planning, travel immunisations, ear syringing, healthy living advice, blood pressure checks and dressings. The Practice Nurses run clinics for long-term health conditions such as asthma and diabetes, and carry out cervical smears. Our Healthcare Assistant, Maria, supports the Practice Nurses with their daily work and carries out tasks such as blood tests, blood pressures, ear syringing and dressings. A member of the Nursing Team may also act as a chaperone when a patient or doctor requests one.
In April 2016 we welcomed Simone Morris to the Nursing Team. She joins us in the position of Nurse Care Co-ordinator. She will be looking after some of our high risk patients, primarily in their home, and looking at ways to better support them and as a result reduce their hospital attendances.
