We currently employ a Nurse Practitioner, two practice nurses and a health care assistant.

Our Nurse Practitioner is able to see patients and diagnose and prescribe for many conditions including:
Lizzy is also able to fit contraceptive implants and is also our lead in diabetes (jointly with Dr MacLeay) and carries out diabetic reviews and can initiate insulin when appropriate.
The reception team will be happy to assist you with any queries you may have regarding booking to see the nurse practitioner
Our Practice Nurses are Perdita Stone and Jan Richards
Our Practice Nurses are available by appointment for advice about any health matters, including immunisations and dressings . They carry out blood pressure checks, ECGs, cervical smears, and health checks for newly registered patients and patients with long term conditions, including asthma, diabetes or high blood pressure.
Please note that blood tests ordered by your doctor are carried out by our Health Care Assistant (who is a trained phlebotomist) in a separate clinic, not by practice nurses, so please specify your requirement when booking an appointment.
Our Health Care Assistant is Bev Cox. We also have two other health care staff trained as phlebotomists - Louise Butler and Jude Bright.
