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
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.
Wellbeing for Life
Dawn, our wellbeing for life practitioner, holds a clinic on Wednesdays for patients who have been referred for advice or support on issues such as stopping smoking, social isolation, confidence building and other non-clinical issues which affect our everyday lives. Please ask the GP for information and referral if you feel this would benefit you.
