MANAGEMENT

JANICE GOWER

Deputy Practice Manager

Jan is responsible for the HR, premises and equipment requirements for the surgery, including managing the clinical staff rota.

MELISSA PICKARD

Reception Manager

Melissa manages a team of 20 receptionists who deal with all inbound calls, emails and e-consults and the front desk operation.

PHYSICIANS ASSOCIATES

Physician Associates are medically trained, generalist healthcare professionals, who work alongside doctors and provide medical care as an integral part of the multidisciplinary team. Physician associates are dependent practitioners working with a dedicated medical supervisor but are able to work autonomously with appropriate support.

CLINICAL PHARMACISTS

The Clinical Pharmacists support the surgeries GPs by reviewing patient medication, responding to acute medicine requests, dealing with medication changes on discharge from hospital, and managing long-term conditions.

FIRST CONTACT PRACTITIONERS

A First Contact Practitioner (FCP) is an experienced physiotherapist who has the advanced skills necessary to assess, diagnose and recommend appropriate treatment or referral for musculoskeletal (MSK) problems on a patient's first contact with healthcare services e.g. when they visit their GP surgery.

NURSES/NURSE PRACTITIONERS

The Practice Nurses run clinics for diabetes, heart disease, asthma monitoring, weight checks, smears, blood pressure checks, flu clinics, travel advice and injections (Please allow 8 weeks before traveling to attend your first appointment), baby vaccinations, blood tests, contraception, dressings and various other treatments. Please let reception know what you are seeing the Practice Nurse for, so they can ensure that they allocate you enough time for your care to be carried out.

HEALTH CARE ASSISTANTS

Our Healthcare assistants work alongside and support our practice nurse team. Healthcare assistants can see patients for a range of procedures such as, taking blood, performing ECGs, wound assessment, and long-term condition management.

CARE CO-ORDINATORS

Care Coordinators work across a number of fields and in some cases may focus on a specific group of patients, such as a particular age group or those with particular health problems. As an integral part of our multi-disciplinary team, our care coordinators will work closely with the patient to assess their needs, with the aim to develop and deliver personalised care plans.

SOCIAL PRESCRIBERS

Our Social Prescribers help patients to improve their health, wellbeing, and social welfare by connecting them to community services, which might be run by the council or a local charity.

RECEPTION/ADMINISTRATION

We have a team of receptionists and medical secretaries who will assist you in using the services offered by the surgery.

COMMUNITY NURSES

District Nurses visit those who are housebound through illness or disability. They can advise relatives and friends about caring for the elderly or infirm. There are no district nurses based on site, but they can be contacted on (01256) 338833.

HEALTH VISITORS

The Health Visitors are involved in promoting health for all the family, within the community. A Child Health Clinic is held weekly at Carnival Hall, Basingstoke.
