Reception

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.

Pharmacists

Our team support those with long term conditions like asthma, diabetes, CPOD and high blood pressure. They are also available to complete medication reviews. Please contact reception if you would like to book an appointment.

Social Prescribing Link Worker

We have the services of a Social Prescribing link worker at the practice every Thursday. The main aim of her role is to help people to improve their health and wellbeing by connecting them to activities in the community. Link workers connect those feeling lonely, overwhelmed or in need of help to a range of local support, from community and activity groups to work, debt or housing advice. Please discuss with a GP or Nurse Practitioner if you would like a referral.

Paramedic

Our paramedic works alongside our GPs to carry out urgent home visits Monday - Thursday. The GPs will assess whether a visit by the paramedic is necessary on case-by-case basis.

Dietician

Clinics are held every other month – please discuss any referral with a GP or Nurse Practitioner. In addition, we hold monthly diabetic clinics where the dietician is available to perform an annual review and provide support.

District Nurses

District Nurses provide care to patients in their homes. They will only visit housebound patients.
