Nurses

Sister Amanda Smart
Practice nurses are qualified and registered nurses. They can help with health issues such as family planning, healthy living advice, blood pressure checks and dressings. The practice nurses run clinics for long-term health conditions such as asthma and diabetes. They carry out cervical smears and ear syringing.

Healthcare Assistants

Mrs Cheryl Lightfoot (f)

Healthcare assistants support practice nurses with their daily work and carry out tasks such as phlebotomy (drawing blood), blood pressure measurement, Check4Life health checks and new patient checks. They may act as a chaperone when a patient or doctor requests one.  Cheryl is the Stop Smoking Advisor, so if you are considering stopping smoking please make an appointment to see her and she will support you through it. She is also the Young Carers representative.
