The Practice is pleased to announce that Ros Rimmer has joined the practice team as a Nurse Practitioner.
As well as carrying out practice based nursing duties the Nurse practitioner role will include telephone triage for minor illness and advice.
When contacting the surgery you will be asked if you feel your health needs may be met by a telephone conversation in the first instance. The practice finds many patients questions can be answered during a telephone triage and therefore freeing up more doctors appointments. If the Nurse Practitioner feels your needs are best met by a consultantation with a GP this will be arranged for you.
