Paramedics

Our paramedics work closely with GP colleagues at the practice as part of our multi-disciplinary team. They provide care to patients visiting the practice and also patients that are housebound or in other community settings. They are trained to assess, treat, manage or refer patients according to the nature and severity of their condition.

Medicines Management

Made up of pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and administrators this team supports with the management of medicines at our practice and responding to medication queries from patients. The team helps by maximising benefits and minimising risks associated with medicines, as well as making the best use of resources allocated for medication. They take responsibility for some aspects of care management of patients with chronic diseases, including undertaking medication reviews to proactively manage patients and their care. They carry out a wide range of other tasks including medicines reconciliation after patients are discharged from hospital, reviewing and adding medicines requested in outpatient letters, monitoring of high-risk drugs, completing safety audits, responding to medication queries, processing prescription requests, liaising with community pharmacies and consenting patients for repeat dispensing. Our team consists of Kim P (Practice Pharmacist), Tash E (Pharmacy Technician) Amy M, Toni O, Laura S and David B

Nurses

Our nursing team help with a wide range of patient care including practice nursing and minor illness/same day clinics. The team are involved with managing chronic diseases to health screening, for example, cytology (smear tests), to immunisations, including flu, pneumococcal, and those needed for babies as well as patient dressings and observations. We also have members of the team that see patients for minor illness or same day appointments. They work closely with GP colleagues to assess, treat, and provide advice to patients presenting with illnesses requiring same day treatment. Some of our nurses have also undertaken further qualifications to enable them to prescribe for our patients. The team carry out a wide range of roles allowing them to develop long-term relationships with individuals and families to better manage their conditions and improve patients’ physical and mental health and wellbeing.

First Contact Mental Health Nurse

Our First Contact Mental Health Nurses look to offer support, advice and guidance around all areas of mental health. They will be able to provide brief intervention and self-help materials, discuss medication and refer to specialist Mental Health teams if required. We also have our Primary Care Network Mental Health Occupational Therapist, Jody Dennis who works with our team to support patients.

BARBARA JONES

First Contact Physiotherapists

Our first contact practitioners are physiotherapists with enhanced skills. They can help patients with musculoskeletal issues such as back, neck and joint pain by assessing and diagnosing issues, giving expert advice on how best to manage conditions and referring onto specialist services if necessary. Patients with back and joint pain, including conditions such as arthritis, can now book an appointment at the practice with the first contact physiotherapist, rather than waiting to see a GP. By making it easier to access physiotherapist, patients will have quicker access to diagnosis and treatment, helping them to manage their conditions more effectively and recover faster, so they can get back to normal life quickly.

Healthcare Assistants

HCAs have an important role in general practice, providing valuable assistance to GPs and practice nurses. Our HCAs are trained to carry out care of patients independently, in line with their qualifications and competencies, with access to a Practice Nurse or GP for support when necessary. Our HCAs take blood, perform ECGs, blood pressure checks as well as giving vaccinations/injections, changing dressings, removing sutures and stitches and seeing patients for annual chronic disease reviews.
