Surgery news

Unfortunately due to a delivery issue the Practice has not yet received any flu vaccines for patients aged under 65 years.  Therefore we have had to cancel the clinics for patients in this age range. As soon as we receive a confirmed delivery date we will rearrange the clinics. 

The dates and times shown on our home page for patients aged 65 years and over are correct as at 27 September 2019.  

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dr Bayles will be retiring from the practice as of 10th September 2019. We wish her all the best for the future and thank her for the 6 years dedication to the practice.........We would like to welcome Dr H Cho as our new GP to Old Town Surgery. Patients of Dr Bayles will automatically be transferred to Dr Cho's care. Dr Cho has spent a year at our Little Common Surgery finalising his training as a General Practitioner and we are very lucky that he has chosen to remain at the practice. 

Nurses

Practice nurses can offer a wide range of services including:

  • general advice on a wide range of health matters (many initial enquiries can best be answered by seeing a nurse rather than a doctor)
  • health promotion advice, especially the assessment and management of risk factors for heart disease and stroke
  • dressings, treatment of minor wounds, removal of stitches
  • foreign travel advice and immunisation
  • tetanus immunisation
  • childhood immunisations
  • anti-coagulation clinics

Little Common has a team of five practice nurses and Old Town has four.

Our practice nursing lead is:

Mrs Nicki Brooks

 

Paramedic Practitioners

 Mrs Joanne Holland and Mr Stuart Webb are Paramedic Practitioners and will be here supporting our GP's, primarily with Home Visits and urgent care support.

Healthcare Assistants

Healthcare assistants support practice nurses with their daily work and carry out tasks such as phlebotomy (drawing blood), ECG monitoring, BP monitoring, urinalysis, spirometry, smoking cessation and new patient checks. They can also assist in the minor surgery, diabetic and cardiac clinics.  They may act as a chaperone when a patient or doctor requests one.
