Our practice nurses have particular skills in health promotion, contraception, foreign travel advice, immunisations, on-going care of asthmatics, diabetics and coronary heart disease and in caring for wounds. They also remove stitches, take cervical smears and syringe ears etc.
If the nurses feel that you need to see a doctor, they will refer you on. Equally, you will often find that the doctors refer you on to the nurses.
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.
Sophie is a phlebotomist as well as a receptionist here at the surgery. She can also take blood pressure and see people for INR's.
Practice Operations Manager.
Our receptionists have a vast knowledge of how the surgery functions and can usually point you in the right direction (e.g. if you are unsure whether you need to see the nurse or the doctor).
They cannot advise about medical problems, but they may ask you for brief details of your problem if you request an urgent appointment or visit. This allows the doctor to see the most urgent patients first. Please be assured that all practice staff are bound by the same rules of confidentiality as the doctors.
