The Nursing Team
At the Surgery, we have a great team of Nurses, consisting of four HCA’s Ali Cohen, Ali Bawden, Lorna Greenland and Cheryl Garland, two Nurses Kerry Owen and Nicola Beament, and three Senior Nurses Angela Harris, Sarah Whittle and Karen Kocinski.
The HCA’s take bloods, blood pressure, some dressings, perform ecg’s and Cheryl can offer smoking advice. Our Treatment Room Nurses can offer vaccinations, medication reviews, stitch/clip removals, asthma reviews, cervical smears and are also trained in Diabetes.
Our Senior Nurses are able to see those who have minor illnesses and are able to prescribe. Angela is also trained in contraception including implants. They can do most things a GP can besides referrals and sick notes and can refer to GP if necessary.
