We have a team of four practice nurses (PN’s) and two healthcare assistants (HCAs). They are available for telephone advice or appointments Monday – Friday. They can help with health issues such as family planning, healthy living advice, blood pressure checks and dressings. The PN’s run clinics for long-term health conditions such as asthma or diabetes, heart check ups, minor ailment clinics and carry out cervical smears.
Our Practice Nurses are as follows:
Sister Jo Gordon
Sister Julie Van Klaveren
Sister Katrina Munro
Sister Amanda Blumson
Our Healthcare Assistants (HCAs), Mrs Kate Rich and Mrs Debbie Webb support the PN’s with their daily work and carry out tasks such as blood pressure measurement and new patient checks. They may also act as a chaperone when a patient or GP requests one.
Our Phlebotomist (Mrs Janet Chase) is also a vital member of the Nursing Team
