Associated Staff

District Nurses

Our District Nurses visit patients in their own home to provide skilled nursing care and to give advice and support to relatives and carers.  They may be contacted by ringing the community clerk on 0117 9082378.

Health Visitors

Our Health Visitors are particularly interested in preventative care and health promotion and offer advice on the health of mothers, babies and children. They can be contacted by ringing the community clerk on 0117 9082378.

Midwives

Our Midwives work with the doctors to provide antenatal and postnatal care for our patients.  It is very important that you contact the practice as soon as you think you are pregnant to make a booking appointment with the midwife.  Weekly antenatal clinics are held at the Primary Care Centre by appointment with the midwife.  Pre-pregnancy information and advice can also be discussed with the midwife.

The midwives can be contacted by ringing the community clerk on 0117 3408470.

Community Matron

The community matron and her team specialise in caring for older people, whether they live in their own home or a care home. They aim to help patients manage their health problems and so prevent unnecessary admissions to hospital. If patients are admitted they liaise with the hospital team to ensure a faster, effective discharge.

Pharmacist

Our Pharmacist, Rebecca Thorne, advises us on all aspects of prescribing within the practice. This includes providing information and clinical advice on medicines, making recommendations on cost effectiveness, reviewing individual patient's medication and other prescribing projects. Rebecca works with patients and all members of the primary healthcare team and is in the practice every Thursday. Any change she suggests to individual medication regimes is with the full knowledge and agreement of the doctors.
