Patient Services Coordinators Team

The team is headed by Team Leader Kealey Richards

Our patient services coordinators (historically known as receptionists) have all undertaken specialised training and are keen to help patients in any way possible. They do not offer medical advice but may be able to resolve any queries by seeking more information from patients.

All information given to receptionists is treated strictly confidentiality.  They will ask you to tell them of the reason why you need an appointment because they need to place you on the most appropriate clinical list.  They need to know, they are not being nosey and are subject to all the confidentiality clauses that apply to all of us working in Primary Care.  Please help them by giving them the information they ask you for.

If you wish to talk to a patient services coordinator in private, please do ask.

Home Visits – Paramedic Home Visiting

If possible please try to telephone reception before 11:00 AM if you require a home visit.

You may only request a home visit if you are housebound or are too ill to visit the practice. Our home visits are carried out by qualified Paramedics who will visit you following a telephone assessment by your GP.

You can be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP.

You may also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years.

Community Midwives

Our Community Midwives provide Ante Natal services & short term post natal care following delivery of your baby.

Community Nurses

If you have an illness or incapacity that means you may need nursing care in your own home, the district nurse may visit you. Patients who are likely to benefit from this service include those who are housebound either through illness or frailty or have a terminal illness or those who have recently been discharged from hospital.

Community Nurses provide wound care, palliative care, continence advice, health promotion advice and advice on co-ordinating care packages. If you move into a care home locally, the district nurse may be able to continue your care. Your GP may also be willing to continue to care for you or a number of GPs may provide services for the residents of local care homes.

You can contact them via our reception team.

Health Visitors

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 well-being.
