Nurse Practitioners

This year following Dr Contardi's retirement the practice employed two Advanced Nurse Practitioners. 

Advanced Nurse Practitioners are highly skilled Nurses who have acquired the expert knowledge base, complex decision making skills and clinical competencies for expanded practice.  They essentially work as Doctors.  They see patients in surgery and perform home visits. 

Advanced Nurse Practitioners can see patients for virtually anything they would normally see a GP for.  They diagnose and treat problems, carry out physical examination, arrange investigations, make referrals and they are independent prescribers. 

The only patients they are unable to see are pregnant ladies.  We also ask that patients do not book into see an Advanced Nurse Practitioner for on going problems which they have been seeing a GP for.

Mrs Mandy Bunclark

Mandy has over 25 years of experience working independently in the community visiting and treating housebound patients and patients who have chronic illness.  Mandy will continue in  a similar role, treating housebound patients by performing acute home visits requests, as well as seeing patients for Chronic Disease, Case Management and Over 75 Reviews. 

Mrs Lynsey Maton

Lynsey works all day Monday, Wednesday and Thursday seeing patients who would normally be seen by a GP. 

She has previously worked at the Walk In Centre and Accident & Emergency, as well as in a similar role at another GP surgery.  

Nurses

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

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.
