We are pleased to announce that we have two new members to our Reception staff, Tamzyn and Charlotte.
The Gables Medical Group
We have a midwife who will look after you during your pregnancy and after you have had your baby. We hold weekly ante-natal clinics (Tuesday).
The District Nursing Team carry out a wide variety of duties such as:
- Drug Administration
- Simple and complex wound care
- Continence assessment
- B12 injections
- Catheter care
- Pressure care assessment
- Ear Irrigation (surgery clinics only)
- Palliative care
- Caring for complex deteriorating patients
District nurses run clinics in the surgery but also visit patients who are housebound and unable to get out.
When carrying out house calls they are unable to specify exact dates and times that they will be calling as they expect you to be home, however, they do recognise that some housebound patients do have to visit hospitals and day centres at times; If this is the case, when organising your home visit with the nurse, please let them know any relevant information with regards to this.
District Nurses - direct line: 01670 536211.
