From time to time you may be offered an appointment with a locum doctor. Locum doctors are fully qualified doctors, “filling in“ when one of the regular doctors is away.
We are a training practice and regularly have qualified doctors who wish to train in general practice. These doctors work under the close supervision of the GPs and often have many years of hospital experience behind them as well as experience in general practice.
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.
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.
The team comprises Kath, Karen, Gale, Kerry and Amy.
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.
Our health visitors are based at The Health Care Surgery, 63 Palgrave Road, Sheffield, S5 8GS).
Counsellors and Physiotherapists are attached to the Practice.
