Her role is to see some of the same-day urgent cases, which means we can see patients more quickly. The following complaints (if over the age of 12 years old) can be dealt with by our Advanced Nurse Practitioner, who if necessary, will ask the GP to see you as well. 

Rash, Joint Pain, Mole, Vomiting and diarrhoea, Ear, nose and throat problems, Chest infections, Stomach ache, Lumps/swellings, Water infection, Headache, Hay fever, Period/menopause problems.

Nurses

Nurse Caroline Grix
Nurse Michelle Oates

When booking an appointment with the nurse, it would be helpful if you could tell the receptionist what the appointment is for to enable them to direct you to the appropriate clinic. The nurse will give advice about any health matters and can give vaccinations (including those for foreign travel), check blood pressure, syringe ears, remove stitches and do dressings. If booking for travel vaccinations please state this so we can check your past vaccination history.

They also help monitor chronic illnesses such as high blood pressure, asthma and diabetes. The nurse can also deal with minor illness such as coughs, colds, diarrhoea, earache etc. but only emergencies can be seen without an appointment.

Healthcare Assistants

Mrs Gloria Smedley (f)
Mrs Hannah Waring (f)

We have two Healthcare Assistants working as part of the team. They are trained in phlebotomy, blood pressure monitoring, some injection treatments and health checks etc.

Phlebotomists

Miss Morgan Oates (f)

Blood samples are collected by specially trained members of staff. Please telephone or ask at reception for an appointment. Blood samples have to be taken in the morning so as to get to the laboratory. Blood samples can also be taken at the Northern General Hospital or the Hallamshire Hospital. Please ask reception for details. Please note, the phlebotomist cannot give medical advice.
