Nurse Practitioners

Locum Advanced Nurse Practitioner

We often have locum ANP clinics in practice. ANPs can deal with most patients requesting acute, same-day appointments that do not require GP contact. This more effective use of primary care services allows GPs to see patients with more complex health needs.

Nurses

Janet Betts (f)

Practice Nurses are qualified and registered nurses.  They can help with health issues such as Family Planning, Healthy Living, Blood Pressure checks, Blood tests, Vaccinations and immunisations, travel vaccines and advice.  The Practice Nurse can also run clinics for long-term health conditions such as Asthma, COPD, Diabetes and Health reviews.  They also carry out Cervical Smears.

Healthcare Assistants

Mr Alessio Russo (m)
Healthcare assistants support practice nurses with their daily work and carry out tasks such as phlebotomy (drawing blood), blood pressure measurement and new patient checks. They may act as a chaperone when a patient or doctor requests one.
Melissa Blatherwick (f)

Healthcare Assistants support the Practice Nurse and are an invaluable member of staff.  They carry out tasks such as blood taking, blood pressure monitoring, new patient checks, NHS Health checks, certain vaccinations, but not all, certain injections and breath tests.  They can also act as a chaperone when a patient or Doctor requests one.
