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 or diabetes, minor ailment clinics and carry out cervical smears.
Healthcare assistants support practice nurses with their daily work and carry out tasks such as phlebotomy (drawing blood), blood pressure measurement and new patient checks. They may act as a chaperone when a patient or doctor requests one.
A health visitor is a registered nurse who has received training particularly related to babies, children and pregnant women. Their role is to provide families with children under five years old with support and advice around the general aspects of mental, physical and social wellbeing.
As part of the Primary Health Care Trust, the Community Nurses work in partnership with patients, their families, carers and other health care services. The Community Nurses are NOT employed by the Practice. For those patients who are housebound, our service offers skilled nursing care, advice and support.
The Gold Standards Framework (GSF) is a practice-based system to improve the organisation and quality of palliative care services for patients who are at home in their last year of life. The practice regularly meets with a Specialist Nurse from St Wilfrid's Hospice and the Community Nursing Team.
The midwifery service is provided by Western Sussex Hospitals NHS Trust; the Practice has an allocated midwife who sees patients at Yapton Surgery and at home.
Paul Lovell has worked for the surgery since June 2021. Paul is responsible for the overall management of the business and is your main point of contact should you need to raise any concerns or complaints about the service that you receive from the team.
Receptionists provide an important link for patients with the practice and are your initial contact point for general enquiries. They can provide basic information on services and results and direct you to the right person depending on your health issue or query. Receptionists make most of the patient appointments with the GPs and nurses. They also perform other important tasks such as issuing repeat prescriptions and dealing with prescription enquiries, dealing with financial claims, dealing with patient records and carrying out searches and practice audits.
Our Admin Team carries out business and quality assurance tasks.
