Advanced Nurse Practitioner

We have a team of Advanced Nurse Practitioners supporting our GPs. They can assist with most medical conditions and can prescribe just as a GP would.

Caroline Ayers

Paramedic

Our Paramedic works with the Surgery and will often carry out home visits on behalf of the GPs.

John Palmer

Clinical Pharmacist

Our Clinical Pharmacist is here to resolve day-to-day medicine issues and consult with and treat patients directly. This includes providing help to manage long-term conditions, advising those taking multiple medicines and delivering clinical advice about treatments. Having clinical pharmacists in GP practices means that GPs can focus their skills where they are most needed, for example on diagnosing and treating patients with more complex conditions. This helps GPs to manage the demands on their time.

Hayley Jeffery

John Bowles

Social Prescribing Link Worker

Beth Harris and Barry Trustram work within the Surgery to provide social support for our patients. The Social Prescribing team is here to connect people with non-medical support such as day centres, charities or community groups in the community to improve their wellbeing and tackle social isolation.

HCAs carry out many procedures including ECGs, wound care management, administering injections (including flu and pneumonia vaccinations and B12 injections). They also carry out annual health checks and blood pressure monitoring.

Health Navigators are trained to ask you clinical questions in order to navigate you to the appropriate service/clinician. They have been asked to do so by the GPs, so please help them to help you.

Administration Teams

We have a team of secretaries and administrators who are responsible for a wide variety of tasks. This includes dealing with requests for medical reports, referrals, clinical letters, communications, emails, and our general enquiry line.

The general enquiry line is open from 9am to 12 noon and 2pm to 5pm.

Carer Support Workers

We have two Carer Support Workers - Sally Corbishley and Claire Horton. The role of the CSW is primarily to listen; sometimes just having the chance to talk to someone can make a huge difference. They can refer you to Social Care for help, they can assist with benefits advice and put you in touch with the carers groups and support. Our CSWs do home visits and see people at the surgery.
