Business Manager - Mrs Janet Fry
Operations Manager - Mrs Helen Allen
Mrs Fry & Mrs Allen are responsible for all aspects of practice business.
We have two secretaries who deal with all referrals by the doctors, requests for home visits, requests for medical reports and supplying invoices for non-NHS work.
Our reception supervisors are responsible for the day to day running of the reception and are available for advice. We have a team of reception staff and care navigators who deal with requests for surgery appointments, home visit requests, issue of repeat prescriptions and general day-to-day enquiries.
Our Admin team is responsible for a wide variety of process, including (but not limited to) dealing with all incoming emails and eConsults, processing requests for copies of patient records, managing patient records and ensuring information is current and accurate, inviting patients for annual reviews and vaccinations, and managing appointments for postnatal and new baby checks.
Health Promotion Nurses
The practice's nursing sisters provide specialist advice and reviews on the management of asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cardiovascular disease, control of diabetes, lifestyle advice, well person clinics, cervical smears, hypertension, cholesterol and initial travel advice.
Urgent Care Team
All requests for urgent appointments will be passed to the triage sister who will return your call and determine the best course of action - either advice, or an appointment with the nurse or duty doctor.
Treatment Room Nurse
Our practice nurses provide immunisations and injections (including travel immunisations), removal of stitches, dressings and other referrals from the GPs.
Our three healthcare assistants support the nurses in their clinical duties, enabling them to concentrate on their specialist roles. Appointments are available for blood pressure monitoring, measuring of height and weight and new patient health checks.
We have two Clinical Pharmacists working alongside the general practice team (and across the primary care network), whose role is to assess and proactively manage patients’ medication (particularly those with chronic conditions). This includes carrying out medication reviews, prescribing medications, and liaising with specialist and community pharmacists in order to ensure the most effective management of chronic conditions. They provide specialist expertise, supporting patients to get the best from their medications, reduce waste and support self-care.
In addition to the above, the practice has access to a number of other healthcare professionals. Details here.
