Health Visitors

A health visitor is a registered nurse who has received training particularly related to babies, children and pregnant women. Their role is to provide families with children under five years old with support and advice around the general aspects of mental, physical and social wellbeing.

Attached Staff

We also have the following staff that work with and form part of our Surgery’s Clinical Team.

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.

Rapid Intervention Service (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.

Dietitian

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 dietitian is available to perform an annual review and provide support.

First Contact Practitioner (FCP)

FCP’s have advanced skills to assess, diagnose, treat and manage musculoskeletal (MSK) problems. This involves seeing patients, without prior contact with their GP, to establish a rapid and accurate diagnosis and management plan. Please contact reception if you would like to book an appointment.

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.

District Nurses

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