E-Consult


We have gone live with a new online system called eConsult. It allows patients to self-check symptoms and receive medical advice without attending the Surgery. You can use this 24 hours a day and if needed our GPs will respond no later than the end of the next working day. Please see our home page for further details.


 

Community Nurses

District nurses are qualified nurses who care for patients in their own homes, as well as in health centres and GPs’ surgeries. They have had extra training to enable them to advise patients on nursing problems. The district nurse will teach patients about self care and will show carers how to cope in their absence. Their duties range from dressings, injections etc to care of the terminally ill.

Health Visitors

The health visitor is a registered nurse who has an additional certificate. She is concerned with teaching the principles of healthy living to practically everybody in the family. It begins with the mother of her new baby. She will discuss the many things which can contribute to the growth of a healthy child. The health visitor is in a position to recognise and identify the needs of families in cases where people may not be fully aware of the health risks. Duties may also include school health work and the provision of health education in schools. Working with the elderly is another area of her work. Running specialist clinics is also an area of expertise undertaken by the health visitors.
