Online access update

Don't forget to request your medication and book your appointments online. We now offer web bookable appointments for blood tests (phlebotomy), INR (warfarin monitoring) and smears (well woman clinics). These should be booked only when a doctor or nurse has requested you have one of these tests or if your smear is due. We will soon be offering web bookable appointments for the pre-school booster vaccination for children.

You are now also able to message your GP via this service. This can be used for simple queries, such as a medication query, checking if you need a blood test/review, results query.

 

New members of staff

We now have a paramedic practitioner, Jo Matthews. Jo has years of experience working in the ambulance service and has spent the last year working in GP practice. She will be undertaking home visits, triage, consultations and will be helping to look after our more frail patients.

We also have a senior pharmacist, Rachel Nilsen. Rachel has experience of working in primary care and will be responsible for various aspects of patient care such as complex medication reviews and chronic disease management. 

Finally, we have a new GP, Dr Poorvie Hewa Pathiranage, who is doing one surgery a week. She is currently a partner in a practice in Borden, and will be increasing her number of surgeries later in the year. She is interested in all aspects of general practice, specialising in women's health and minor surgery. She is also involved in training junior doctors.

Many common illnesses can be treated at home. Ask your pharmacist for advice on the best medicines and treatments for minor ailments.
