Senior Practice Nurse
Practice nurses are qualified and registered nurses. They can help with health issues such as family planning, healthy living advice, blood pressure checks and dressings. The practice nurses run clinics for long-term health conditions such as asthma or diabetes, minor ailment clinics and carry out cervical smears.
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.
Margaret is available daily 09:00 - 12:00 by appointment, after referral from the doctor or nurse. Wednesday morning is specifically for INR patients only from 09:00 - 12:00. Appointments 09:00 - 10:20 are for fasting blood samples and from 10:30 - 11.50 for non-fasting blood samples. Margaret, Kate & Charlene do the weekly INR clinic on a rota basis via coaguchek. Advantages to the patient, only a finger prick required, sample is dosed and patient has their result and a review date and time before leaving the surgery.
Kate (receptionist) has trained in phlebotomy and is available on a Friday morning 08:30 - 11:20, following referral from the doctor or nurse.

Kate McGlinchey Finance Manager
The practice manager is involved in managing all of the business aspects of the practice such as making sure that the right systems are in place to provide a high quality of patient care, human resources, finance, patient safety, premises and equipment and information technology. The practice manager supports the GPs and other medical professionals with delivering patient services and also helps to develop extended services to enhance patient care.
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.
