Dr C Maden is now on maternity leave pending the imminent birth of her second child. We wish her a safe and happy delivery and look forward to her return to practice next year.
Our practice nurses, who are all registered general nurses, are on duty during surgery hours to carry out treatments prescribed by the doctor and to deal with minor injuries and illnesses. They are also involved in the management of our patients with asthma, heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure and chronic lung disease. Four of our nurses are qualified to perform cervical smears and provide contraceptive advice.
When booking an appointment with the nurse, please advise the receptionist of the reason for your visit in order that the appropriate time can be allocated to a nurse or healthcare assistant.
The HCAs are specially trained in various aspects of care to assist the practice nurses in areas such as phlebotomy (taking blood samples), blood pressure, ECGs and other tests and treatments.
