As advance practitioners and independent nurse prescribers, Sally and Jacqui will see patients of all ages in a 12-15 minute surgery, consisting of appointments with a wide variety of acute illnesses and health problems. They will make an assessment, which may include a physical examination, make a diagnosis and decide with the patient on an appropriate course of treatment or on a management plan. This may include advice referral for further investigation, an appropriate prescription, or referral to another member of the medical team.
In some circumstances they will facilitate the issuing of medical certificates. Our nurse practitioners also see patients to discuss and prescribe contraceptive needs. Chronic disease management is usually monitored by the health sisters but they will see patients if an acute problem occurs. Patients who are trying to stop smoking can also see our nurse practitioners for support.
Their nurses traditional role included routine health checks, cervical smears, menopause clinic, travel clinic, flu immunisation clinic, over 75yr checks and asthma clinics. However over the last 3-4 years they have taken on the treatment and monitoring of Hypertension, Ischaemic Heart Disease, Peripheral Vascular Disease and Diabetes.
Our trained team of healthcare assistants help with Diabetic Clinics, COPD clinics, take bloods and ear syringing, B12 injections, flu vaccinations and INR. We are looking for them to take over more of the nurses traditional tasks to free them up for other chronic disease work.
We take management very seriously at Measham. If the management is right, then everything flows smoothly and the doctors are freed from hassle, so that they are able to devote their energies to looking after patients. However good management doesn’t just happen; it takes huge amounts of hard work and energy.
We are incredibly lucky to have a loyal and hardworking team, with a very low staff turnover.
Our Practice Management 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 Reception Team:
Our midwife and most of the doctors hold antenatal clinics. If you know that you are pregnant it is not necessary to see a doctor. Just book a first antenatal appointment with the midwife. The midwives also give pre - conceptual care and advice and hold parent craft classes. The midwives offer a home delivery service if appropriate and they also visit you during the postnatal period after you have had the baby.
This team offers comprehensive care in the home allowing the very ill to remain at home when preferred. It works with other nursing agencies such as Hospice at Home / Marie Curie, Macmillan and out of hour’s teams.
The team is dedicated to providing the best care at home when it is needed, but travelling takes up time we would rather spend with patients. For this reason we only make home visits when patients are too ill to come to surgery.
Every family with a child under 5 years old can access the Health Visiting Team. We can offer advice and support on a child's health and development and other issues affecting the family.
Immunisations are offered weekly on alternate Tuesday's, Thursday's or Friday's by appointment with one of our nurses. The health visitors also provide normal appointments on a Tuesday that you can book by contacting the health visitors directly on 01530 270391.
The Health Visitors and Doctors will offer reviews to monitor your child's health and development up to their 5th birthday.
