In April we appointed two new members of the team. Our two new ladies are Nurse Practitioners who are fully qualified to see patients, diagnose problems and prescribe medication in their own right. You may be given an appointment with one of these ladies by our triage doctors or reception staff but please be assured that should it become apparent that a doctor is more appropriate for your care, there will always be one available on site.
Our nurse practitioners are in addition to our present doctors, nurses and health care assistants and offer a different skill mix, which we hope will prove useful in delivering the best possible patient care.
It is with sadness that we announce the retirement of Dr Fussey who has been with the practice for 23 1/5 years. All of her colleagues here at the practice wish her a long, happy and healthy retirement and hope that she enjoys her well earned rest!
