Introducing The Other Members Of Your Primary Health Care Team
Alongside the doctors at our surgery, our skilled nursing and administrative staff work hard performing other duties.
In addition to routine treatment room procedures our nurses have received extra training to enable them to run Asthma, Diabetic, Coronary Heart Disease and Family Planning Clinics.
The following groups of staff are attached to the practice but are not employed by us or based at our surgery premises.
District nurses provide invaluable care, mainly to patients who are terminally ill or housebound. They can perform blood tests, injections, dressings, and other nursing procedures. They also provide longer term nursing care to those who require it at home. If you feel that you need the help of a District Nurse, please ask your doctor.
