Practice Nurses

Practice Nurses are fully trained in a wide range of skills including immunisations, health promotion, contraception and management of long-term conditions e.g. advise on diet and lifestyle choices, coronary heart disease, hypertension, asthma, diabetes, smoking cessation and obesity. Practice Nurses can extend their skills at Diploma Level and see many patients who previously would have seen the Doctor.

Our Practice Nurses Gail Nolan, Barbara Fletcher, Claire Yager, Ekene Taylor and Emily Timbrell run their own surgeries for practical nursing procedures and chronic diseases such as Asthma, COPD and Hypertension (see Our Clinics for the full list).

Clinical Pharmacists

Practice based clinical pharmacists are highly qualified experts in medicines and can help people in a range of ways. This includes carrying out structured medication reviews for patients with ongoing health problems and improving patient safety, outcomes and value through a person-centred approach. Our senior clinical pharmacists Arshna Sanghrajka and Femeeda Padhani work as part of the general practice team to improve value and outcomes from medicines, consult with and treat patients directly, and run long term condition clinics for Diabetes and Asthma/COPD.

Having clinical pharmacists in GP practices means that GPs can focus their skills where they are most needed, for example on diagnosing and treating patients with more complex conditions. This helps GPs to manage the demands on their time.
