Community Nurses

The nursing team mainly work in the homes of people not well enough to get to the surgery. They deliver a range of home nursing services to house-bound patients and are skilled in assessing the care needs of such patients.

Counsellors

Professionally trained and qualified counsellors offer support to those undergoing difficult times in their life. They can help people cope with problems such as chronic anxiety, panic episodes and depression. Appointments are usually made through your doctor.

The Community Mental Health Teams

Both the adult team and that for elderly patients link closely with the practice. In addition to specially trained nurses, the teams include occupational therapists and social workers. They liase closely with the clinical psychologists and psychiatrists.

Health Visitors

A health visitor is a registered nurse who has received training particularly related to babies, children and pregnant women. Their role is to provide families with children under five years old with support and advice around the general aspects of mental, physical and social wellbeing.

Physiotherapists

Our visiting physiotherapy team treats a variety of muscle and joint problems and will give people advice how to prevent recurring problems too. Most of the treatments can be carried out in the surgery, but for some conditions it is better for people to attend the physiotherapy department at the hospital. In exceptional circumstances it may be possible for one of the community physiotherapists to visit people in their homes. Referral to the physiotherapist is usually by one of the doctors.

Podiatrist

The podiatrist and footcare assistant visit the practice and hold regular clinics for those with specific foot problems and for people with certain long-term conditions, such as diabetes, who need specialist help with the care of their feet. Unfortunatly no routine nailcare service is available. Appointments must be made by a referral from either a doctor or nurse.
