Practice Nurse Service
We offer the benefits of a well equipped treatment room which is run by our experienced team Sister Penny Tallant, Nurse Helen Falla and Sister Camilla Shorey, much of the equipment having been generously donated by our patients. The treatment room is open from Monday to Friday. Here the nurses undertake duties such as vaccinations, dressings, removal of stitches, ear syringing, travel advice and the treatment of warts.
Sister Tallant and Sister Shorey also run specialist clinics for health promotion and advice on lifestyle issues, diabetes, coronary heart disease, hypertension and vascular disease.
Appointments for the nurses are made through reception.
District Nurses and Health Visitors
These nurses are employed by the NHS Foundation Trust and operate from the medical centre. The district nurses can be contacted through our enquiries line on 01202 486456 and the health visitors on 01202 495431.
Please contact reception for details of current arrangements.
Mrs Marie Geary is our Practice Manager. She will be able to help you with any administrative or non-medical aspect of your care or treatment. She is happy to discuss any comments or concerns that you may have in respect of the services and non-medical care you receive.
Our receptionists are here to help you. They will make appointments for you to see the doctors, nurses or other healthcare workers attached to the surgery. They are available to answer queries and offer help and assistance at all times. In order to help you they may need to ask you for further details about your requests when you call at the surgery or when you telephone. This is to ensure we can assist you as speedily as possible. They are not being nosey and are bound by the same rules of confidentiality as the doctors and nurses. We ask you to treat them with courtesy and respect.
