All GP appointments will now be done via telephone triage.  If you already have an appointment booked in you will be contacted by telephone prior to your appointment by a GP.  We are not booking any advance GP appointments - please telephone surgery on the day you need telephone appointment.   Nurse/health care/midwife etc will go ahead as usual as long as you do not have any symptoms of cough and high fever - we will aim to contact all patients to ask if they have any symptoms. Please be patient with us at this difficult time.

 

 

Community Services

Community Nurses

The Community Nurses provide nursing care and advice to patients in their own homes.  They liaise with hospitals and other Specialised Nurses and Services such as Home Care, Social Services, The Macmillan Unit and Chiropody.  They can arrange extra support for patients who require long-term care.

District Nurses

The District Nursing Team provides specialist nursing to those in the community who are unable to get to the surgery for treatment such as wound care.  They are also responsible for the on-going health care needs of housebound patients and their families with a variety of conditions such as diabetes, arthritis, etc. Another large part of their role is supporting terminally ill patients who wish to be cared for in their own home.  Their service also includes the promotion of continence and health education.

Health Visitors

Health Visitors are Qualified Nurses who have received Specialist Training in Child and Family Health.  Early detection of ill-health, monitoring of growth and development and Health Promotion are their responsibility, with particular reference to mothers, babies and the under 5’s.  The Health Visitor liaises closely with the GPs, Nurses, and other professionals aligned to medicine such as Speech Therapists, Special Educational Needs Co-ordinators and Social Workers.  The Health Visitors have knowledge of the facilities and resources available to families and children in the area.  They will see patients at home or in their clinic.

Community Midwives

Our Community Midwives work with the Doctors to provide care of mothers before and after delivery and care of babies in the first 28 days of life. Booked appointments only.
