First Contact Practitioner

The Practice now has the services of a 'First contact practitioner' once a week on a Wednesday morning (8-12), whose role in primary care is to assess patients with soft tissue, muscle and joint pain and to decide on the most appropriate management pathway. FCPs are practitioners with expertise in the assessment and management of Musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions. They can organise investigations, medications and onward services.

Clinical Pharmacists

The Practice now has the services of a Clinical Pharmacist on a Tuesday afternoon, whose role is to support those with long term conditions like asthma, diabetes and high blood pressure or anyone taking multiple medications to make sure their medication is working.

Social Prescribing Link Worker

We have the services of a Social Prescribing link worker at the practice fortnightly on a Friday. The main aim of her role is to help people to improve their health and wellbeing by connecting them to activities in the community. Link workers connect those feeling lonely, overwhelmed or in need of help to a range of local support, from community and activity groups to work, debt or housing advice.
