Community Nurses

District nursing sisters are qualified to degree level and provide a service to housebound patients. The district nurse is supported by a team of fully qualified nurses. The team provides professional support and advice in a variety of areas such as terminal care, wound care, incontinence assessments and some post-operative discharge follow-ups. Each patient is assessed individually and care planned accordingly, in discussion with the patient. Referral on to other agencies may be appropriate in some cases.

Reception

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 financial claims, dealing with patient records and carrying out searches and practice audits.
