We have access to a team of community nurses who work closely with the doctors, providing nursing assistance to patients confined to their homes. The hospital will normally arrange for a nurse to call on patients discharged early and who still require nursing treatment at home. To contact the community nurses, telephone 01329 664231 and leave a message at reception and the community nurses will phone you back.
We have access to a health visitor who gives health care advice, particularly for families with small children and children with special needs. To contact the health visitor, telephone 023 9250 5282 and leave a message.
We have access to a midwife who provides maternity care. To contact the midwife, telephone 023 9252 3651.
General Practitioner Registrar And Students
Our practice is a training practice. Our registrars are fully qualified doctors who have had experience solely in hospital medicine. They are invited to join the practice for a year to gain insight into the sort of medical problems encountered in general practice. When booking an appointment you may be asked if you would consult with one of our registrars, who are excellent doctors appointed by the practice.
They are at all times encouraged to seek advice when required from the practice partners. The registrars require to video some of their consultations to assist with their training. You will be advised if a session is to be videoed, and you have the right at the start and end of the consultation to withdraw consent for its use.
Doctors sometimes have medical students sitting in with them. You will be advised if this is the case when you attend. If you would prefer to see the doctor alone, please let the receptionist know.
