GP Registrar

A GP registrar is a qualified doctor who is furthering their training within the field of general practice, preparing for a career as a general practitioner. If you’re seen by a GP registrar at you’re still being seen by a qualified doctor, just one that hasn’t fully completed their GP training yet. Their role involves providing primary care services to patients under the indirect supervision of a qualified GP. They essentially do the same job as a normal GP, but will just be able to ask questions to another GP should they come across a particularly tricky case they’re not sure how to manage. A GP registrar is responsible for diagnosing and treating various medical conditions, offering preventative healthcare advice, and managing long-term health conditions.

Nurses

The nurses are available by appointment for various treatments, health promotion advice and screening, including smears, immunisations and vaccinations. The nurses are qualified to advise and treat many minor conditions and it may prove quicker to see a Practice Nurse than wait for a consultation with your doctor, who is always available if you have any cause for concern. When booking an appointment with a nurse, our reception staff may need to ask you the reason for an appointment in order to determine how much time to allocate. Consultations are by appointment.

Reception

Our reception staff are here to help you. When telephoning for medical attention, our reception staff may ask for a minimum of two identification details and if appropriate, the reason for your call.

Our reception staff have undertaken special training and always respect patient confidentiality.

Community Nurses

Tel: 01332 258200 District nurses assess, plan and manage the care of sick and disabled patients of all ages in the patient's own home (when housebound), general practices and residential nursing homes and also provide support for their carers. Individual care is planned, and advice on further help or services is given including health education. Anyone at home can self-refer to this service. They have a close liaison with the Hospital, GPs, the local hospice and other specialised services. They administer drugs, give injections, dress wounds, take blood samples and give personal care. The district nurses are in regular contact with the Practice and messages may be left with the Practice Receptionists.

Community Midwives

Tel: 01332 785796 Midwives care for and support pregnant women, their partners and new babies before, during and after the birth. They monitor the health of the mother, counsel her on health issues and explain the options for delivery of the baby. Their job also involves reassuring parents, running antenatal and parenting classes, taking care of the mother and baby during labour and birth and giving advice on breast feeding.

Health Visitors

Tel: 01283 707170 Health visitors are qualified nurses and have additional training in child health and development, will monitor your child’s growth and development, answer any child health queries and help mothers to cope with children under five, advising on things like hygiene, safety, feeding and sleeping. They also co-ordinate child immunisation programmes and organise special clinics or drop-in centres. Health visitors can also provide you with help and information regarding such issues as emotional problems, relationship difficulties, and family planning and health problems and advise on healthy eating, keeping warm and getting the right exercise.
