Community Clinical Staff

Counsellor

We also offer counselling services at the practice. Jo Hibbert has joined us and she holds sessions on Friday afternoons by appointment after referral from one of the doctors.

Please note that we are unable to deal with dental problems.  If you are not registered with a dentist you can contact the local Primary Care Trust (PCT) on 01782 298000 and they will be able to supply the names and telephone numbers for NHS and private dentists in you area.

District Nurses

The District Nursing Team provides specialist nursing to those in the community who are unable to get to the surgery for treatment such as wound care.  They are also responsible for the ongoing health care needs of housebound patients and their families with a variety of conditions such as diabetes, arthritis, etc. Another large part of their role is supporting terminally ill patients who wish to be cared for in their own home.  Their service also includes the promotion of continence and health education.

Health Visitors

A Health Visitor is concerned with the health and well-being of families.  Health Promotion, early detection of ill health and monitoring of normal growth and development are her responsibility, with particular reference to mothers, babies and the under 5’s.   She liaises closely with the GP’s, other members of the nursing team and professions allied to medicine, such as Social Workers, Speech Therapists and Pre-School Teacher Counsellors.  The Health Visitor has specialist knowledge of the facilities and resources available for families and children in the area.

Community Midwives

The Midwives work closely with the Doctors in providing care for all expectant mothers.  In addition to running Ante-Natal clinics, they work with the Health Visitor in helping to prepare couples for the birth and care of their baby.  The same Midwives will deliver mothers who wish to have their babies at home or in the Maternity Unit and continue to care for them whilst in that hospital and at home afterwards.
