MBCHB, MRCGP, GMC 6057844
Advanced Nurse Practitioner - provides advice and assistance on a range of problems which do not require a doctor.
Provides nursing care, holds special clinics and visits elderly and the disabled at home.
Healthcare assistants support practice nurses with their daily work and carry out tasks such as phlebotomy (drawing blood), blood pressure measurement and new patient checks. They may act as a chaperone when a patient or doctor requests one.
Receptionists provide an important link for patients with the practice and are your initial contact point for general enquiries. They can provide basic information on services and results and direct you to the right person depending on your health issue or query. Receptionists make most of the patient appointments with the GPs and nurses. They also perform other important tasks such as issuing repeat prescriptions and dealing with prescription enquiries, dealing with financial claims, dealing with patient records and carrying out searches and practice audits.
Their role can be very demanding at times and your patience is very much appreciated
