New treatments for Coronavirus

Who should I see?

It is important that you are given an appointment in the most appropriate clinic with the health care professional that can best address your needs. This is no longer necessarily a GP. In recent years, the team has grown to include a range of health professionals who focus on different clinical issues and problems (see below). When you call the practice the medical receptionist has been instructed to ask you for a brief description of your illness to check you get booked in with the right clinician. Anything you discuss with any member of the practice is confidential.

Seeing a Doctor

GPs are trained in medicine and are qualified to treat people for general health problems, such as illnesses or injuries that cannot be treated by over-the-counter medication such as:

  • Active long term health issues
  • Mental health issues
  • Fitness to work
  • Family planning
  • Prescribing medication
  • Referring you to specialists for tests or scans

Seeing a Practice Nurse

All consultations with the practice nurse are by appointment and are available daily. Appointments can be booked up to four weeks ahead. The practice nurse is available for such things as:

  • Child immunisations
  • Cervical smears
  • Contraception injections
  • Long term management of chronic diseases such as coronary heart disease, asthma, hypertension, COPD, diabetes or stroke.
  • Spirometry test
  • High blood pressure reviews

Seeing a Health Care Assistant

A health care assistant can deal with a number of clinical matters and who can avert the need to see a GP or the nurse. If you are unsure, please ask the reception team who will be happy to advise you. All slots are by appointment as with the nurse slots.

  • Blood samples for laboratory tests
  • Warfarin monitoring
  • Flu vaccinations
  • Pneumococcal vaccinations
  • Vitamin B12 injections
  • Review spirometry
  • Diabetic foot checks
