We have three Practice Nurses and two Health Care Assistants who work very closely with the Doctors and are trained to do an extensive number of procedures and tests. They may work along with the doctors, for example assisting in minor surgery or work alone in screening clinics, asthma and diabetes clinics, new patient assessments, etc. You may book directly with the practice nurse for such services as foreign travel immunisation, cervical smears, etc.
Edie, our Assistant Nurse Practitioner, works under the close supervision of our Practice Nurses. She is fully trained to perform new patient reviews, blood tests, CVD risk assessments, certain annual reviews, INR checks, a number of vaccinations and injections, and other routine health checks. She also removes sutures and staples and can check and change a wide variety of dressings.
Our Practice Manager, Gary Trafford, will be only too willing to help you with any administrative or non-medical aspects of your health and treatment. He is also available, by appointment, to discuss any suggestions, which may improve our service to you
All our staff are there to help you and are pleased to do so. Supervised by Mrs Lisa Elliot, receptionists are your link with the rest of the practice. They may need to ask you medical details in order to work effectively and at all times are working under the instructions of the doctors. All information given to them is treated in confidence and they are bound by the same codes of conduct as the Doctors and Nurses. The more information you are able to give to the receptionists the better they will be able to assist you.
