Health Practitioners

Shelly Williams (BSc Hons 2000) is a fully qualified nurse practitioner with 20 years nursing experience. Her role is to provide easy access appointments for acute illness e.g. ear infections, sore throat, chest infections, hay fever etc. Shelly can prescribe treatment for many of these conditions. Routine appointments for review or advice on certain ongoing conditions are also available. Please ask at reception for further details.

Healthcare Assistants

Our Health Care Assistant, Suzanne Elders, provides well person checks and helps in the monitoring of certain conditions. She performs tests such as electrocardiography, lung function tests and assists in the provision of minor operations and phlebotomy. If you have registered with us in the last 6 months, are over 75 and have not seen a health professional in the last year, or are registered with us but have not attended in the last 3 years, you are welcome to make an appointment with her for a check up.

Phlebotomists

Shirley Thorman runs twice weekly morning clinics and takes blood tests at the request of the doctors. We also have a further Phelbotomist in practice who is usually available everyday, Monday to Friday.Transportation arrangements of blood samples to the laboratory generally preclude the availability of a phlebotomy service on an afternoon.
