For a modestly sized practice, we have a relatively large number of doctors and nurses.

This enables us to offer choice, as well as a wide range of skills.

We all participate in regular appraisal and proactively seek to improve our skills.

Health Care Assistant/Phlebotomist – Paula Hambleton

Appointments can be made to see a practice nurse about any health matter you wish to discuss, including advice or treatment of minor ailments which you feel do not require a consultation with one of the doctors. Our practice nurses offer a wide range of expertise in nursing and management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes.

Where your medical condition is well controlled, the doctor may ask you to see the practice nurse for further follow up. They will refer you back to the doctor when necessary.

Community Nurses

District Nurses

The community or district nurses generally care for those who are unable to attend the surgery for nursing treatment. The nursing care given by the community nurses allows people to stay in their own homes who might otherwise need to go into hospital. They also provide care in the surgery.

If available, the District Nurse will speak to you directly; otherwise the receptionist will take a message and the District Nurse will contact you as soon as possible.
