Physician associates are generalist healthcare professionals who are trained to the medical model and play an integral role within the multidisciplinary team. This means that they are able to recognise, diagnose and manage a variety of both acute and chronic conditions. Physician associates work under the supervision of a senior GP but have the ability to work autonomously within they’re competence.
Advanced Nurse Practitioners
The Nurse Practitioners are able to deal with many of the problems you would normally take to a doctor.
They are trained to undertake full clinical examinations of patients with undiagnosed problems or illnesses. They can initiate treatments and prescribe medication where necessary and can refer you to other health professionals such as hospital consultants, physiotherapy etc.
Appointments can be booked with the Nurse Practitioner in the Acute Assessment Unit on a same day basis via the surgery appointment system. Home visits where appropriate may also be arranged via the practice co-ordinator.
For further information on the services provided by the Nurse Practitioners at Park Surgery, please see the leaflet available at reception.
The Practice Nurses provide a wide range of services including: Family Planning, Diabetic monitoring, Asthma Monitoring, Child Health Surveillance, Hypertension Monitoring, Coronary Heart Disease Monitoring, Teenage Sexual Health, Travel Immunisations and Advice, Please ask Treatment Room reception for appointment availability.
Our dedicated team of clinical pharmacists and pharmacy technicians are here to make sure you get support with your medications. Whether this means a review to reduce the amount you take, or to just establish what is most beneficial for you.
Healthcare assistants support practice nurses with their daily work and carry out tasks such as phlebotomy (drawing blood), blood pressure measurement and new patient checks. They may act as a chaperone when a patient or doctor requests one.
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.
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.
