We have a number of services that are attached to the Centre - these include:
Community Psychiatric Nurse
The C.P.N. (Community Psychiatric Nurse) cares for patients with mental health problems in the community. He/she sees such patients in the surgery regularly. The CPN can also help patients with problems of alcohol dependence or drug addiction.
A Health Visitor is a Registered Nurse who has undergone further training in child development and health promotion and can give advice on health care to all age groups, particularly children and the elderly.
The Health Visitor may give some ante-natal support and will make contact shortly after the baby is born to give care and support to both mother and baby.
The Health Visitors hold Well Baby Clinics in the community for weighing and general advice. For details of these clinics please contact your Health Visitor.
The contact telephone number for the Health Visitors is: 03000 269833
The podiatrist visits the surgery twice monthly when we have a Diabetic Clinic. The podiatry service aims to prevent and improve foot problems through assessment, treatment and education. The podiatrist’s time at the surgery is fully taken with diabetic patients.
A hospital Dietitian visits the practice twice monthly when we have a Diabetic Clinic to advise patients on dietary needs. The Dietitian will only see diabetic patients who have a booked appointment.
