Senior Practice Nurse
Our qualified and highly experienced Practice Nurses run a comprehensive nursing service within the Practice. Please make an appointment with the nurse in the same way as with the doctor by telephoning 01924 334400, option 1. The nurses have extra experience in areas of family planning, smears, diabetes, heart disease and asthma.
Healthcare Assistants support Practice Nurses with their daily work and carry out tasks such as phlebotomy (taking blood), blood pressure measurement and new patient checks. They may act as a chaperone when a patient or doctor requests one.
Mrs Leith is the Practice Manager and is responsible for the administration of the Practice. She would be happy to hear your views and suggestions about the service offered by the Practice.
Receptionists provide an important link for patients with the Practice. They can provide basic information on services and direct you to the right person, depending on your health issue or query.
The Practice provides antenatal and postnatal care.
The community midwife attached to the Practice sees expectant mothers, arranges relaxation classes and visits mother and baby after delivery.
In addition to our own Practice Nurses we have attached Community Nurses who can help with various problems, usually in the home. They do run certain surgery clinics where feasible but these are not held at New Southgate Surgery.
The nurses may be contacted on 01924 327591.
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 the age of 5 with support and advice around the general aspects of mental, physical and social wellbeing.
Health Visitors can be contacted via Outwood Surgery on 01924 786251.
