Health Care Assistant
We are fortunate to have a health care assistant who assists the doctors and practice nurses with routine investigations.
If a doctor requests a blood test our HCA will usual take this, together with blood pressure checks.
If you suffer from diabetes you will be given an appointment to see the HCA who will take the preliminary bloods so that when you see the practice nurse, she has all the necessary information to perform your diabetic check.
The HCA will also do minor health checks and medication monitor. Ask at reception for more information on the services our HCA can offer.
We run a special baby clinic on Wednesdays. You can see our practice nurse for baby vaccinations and also our GP for both the baby 8 week check and postnatal checks.
Please note that the baby clinic is for well babies only.
Appointments can be made for baby clinic via our reception desk.
Certain surgical procedures can be undertaken by the practice doctors within the Medical Centre. This may save unnecessary visits to the hospital.
