Nursing Team

Practice Nurses

We currently employ 5 practice nurses: Gail Cox (f), Michelle Hale (f), Catherine Senter (f), Oliver Henwood (m) and Amy Roscoe (f).

Practice nurses are qualified and registered nurses. They can help with health issues such as family planning, healthy living advice, blood pressure checks and dressings.

The practice nurses run clinics for long-term health conditions such as asthma or diabetes, minor ailment clinics, immunisations and carry out cervical smears.

Healthcare Assistants (HCA)

We currently employ 3 HCAs: Helen (f), Kay (f) and Teresa (f).

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.

General Practice Assistants (GPA)

We currently employ 4 GPAs: Chloe (f), Millie (f), Shannon (f) and Laura (f).

General Practice Assistants (GPAs) form part of a multi-disciplinary team within primary care, and provide a support role, combined in some areas with basic clinical duties, helping to free up GPs time and contribute to the smooth running of appointments, improving patients experience in the surgery.

Pharmacy Team

Clinical Pharmacist

Josie Hayles (f) is our Clinical pharmacist. She works as part of the general practice team to improve value and outcomes from medicines and consult with and treat patients directly. This includes providing extra help to manage long-term conditions, advice for those on multiple medicines and better access to health checks.

Pharmacy Technicians

We currently employ 3 pharmacy technicians: Amie-Jaine Bridges (f), Callum Shakespeare (m) and Megan Winfield (f). They support the delivery of safe, effective and efficient systems for medicines optimisation, repeat prescribing, reducing medicine waste and maximising patient outcomes.

We currently employ 8 Dispensers and 1 Apprentice within our dispensary. The team are responsible for managing repeat requests, dispensing prescriptions and supplying medication to patients within our catchment area. We cannot dispense to anyone who lives within 1 mile of another community pharmacy due to dispensing doctors legalities, and you will be prompted to take your prescription to a chemist where applicable.

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 patient records and carrying out searches and practice audit

Healthcare Team

We have a number of services attached to our practice. You can find out more information below.

They provide skilled nursing care to individuals in the community. In addition they work alongside other local community healthcare professionals and those within secondary care. In addition to providing skilled nursing services, they offer and promote health care advice and education and the enjoyment of independence and optimum health.
