Nursing Team

Practice Nurses

Jo McDonald, Nicola Baker and Lauren Purkiss

In addition to general nursing clinics, the nurses hold cervical smear clinics and childhood immunisation and flu clinics. They can also advise you about vaccination requirements for overseas travel. Patients who suffer from chronic diseases such as diabetes and coronary heart disease are also seen regularly by our nurses.
The nurses work closely with the doctors, and with the district nurses and health visitors.

Our Healthcare Assistants are part our our nursing team and offer appointments to help patients to stop smoking, undertake health checks and can offer some immunisations to patients in addition to taking blood and other duties.

 

Phlebotomist

Kelly Jankowski

Our Phlebotomist is responsible for obtaining blood samples as required by the GP or Hospital. You will usually be offered an appointment with her if you need a blood test.
