COVID-19 OUTBREAK

To minimise the risk for both patients and staff, please do not come into the Surgery to make an appointment.  Please make appointments via the telephone.  

Please be reassured that all Clinics are continuing as usual at present. 

DR J GONZALEZ

Sadly Dr Gonzalez has retired from General Practice on 31 March 2020.  He gave the Practice over twenty years of loyal and dedicated service.  He will be greatly missed by both patients and staff.  We wish him a long and happy retirement.

Nurses

Practice nurses can offer a wide range of services including:

  • general advice on a wide range of health matters (many initial enquiries can best be answered by seeing a nurse rather than a doctor)
  • health promotion advice, especially the assessment and management of risk factors for heart disease and stroke
  • dressings, treatment of minor wounds, removal of stitches
  • foreign travel advice and immunisation
  • tetanus immunisation
  • childhood immunisations
  • anti-coagulation clinics

Little Common has a team of five practice nurses and Old Town has four.

Our practice nursing lead is:

Mrs Karen Malone

 

Paramedic Practitioners

 Mrs Joanne Holland and Mr Stuart Webb are Paramedic Practitioners and will be here supporting our GP's, primarily with Home Visits and urgent care support.

Healthcare Assistants

Healthcare assistants support practice nurses with their daily work and carry out tasks such as phlebotomy (drawing blood), ECG monitoring, BP monitoring, urinalysis, spirometry, smoking cessation and new patient checks. They can also assist in the minor surgery, diabetic and cardiac clinics.  They may act as a chaperone when a patient or doctor requests one.
