Nat joined the practice in 1997 as a part time receptionist and subsequently worked in all aspects of practice administration and management obtaining Diplomas in Business Management and Primary Care Health Management in 2009.
Nat will be pleased to discuss any non-medical problems that you have, and is also happy to receive any suggestions for improving the services offered.
We employ a number of receptionists, secretaries, information technology and administration staff. Our receptionists are here to help you and they will ask you for further details when you telephone. This is to ensure that we can assist you as speedily and professionally as possible and allow the doctors to decide, in urgent cases, who to see first. They are bound by the same rules of confidentiality as the doctors and nurses. However, if you do not wish to give your reason for seeing a doctor, simply ask the receptionist to tell the doctor you have “personal reasons”.
The practice nurses we employ each have their own speciality, and they all routinely deal with blood tests, injections and dressings. Some of the speciality clinics available are:
Asthma, Baby Immunisation, Cardiac Care, Diabetic, Family Planning and Foreign Travel.
To make an appointment to see the nurses, or for any of the clinics, telephone (01929) 475104.
NHS Dorset employs district nurses and health visitors etc who work from within the Health Centre. These community services are managed by NHS Dorset and any requests or problems relating to services provided by the community team should be addressed to NHS Dorset, Vespasian House, Bridport Road Dorchester, Dorset DT1 1TS. Tel: (01305) 368900.
Your health visitor will remain involved with you and your baby up to school age or older, should you have a need. She will monitor your child’s growth and development and answer any concerns you may have.
Your community midwife will care for all aspects of pregnancy during the antenatal
period and (following your discharge from the maternity unit) postnatally,
until you and your child are passed to the care of the health visitors. The midwife
holds an antenatal clinic at Swanage Health Centre every Wednesday. Clients may
make initial contact there or via their doctor. There is a Maternity Self Referral
service based at Poole Hospital if you are more than six weeks pregnant; please
ask at reception for details. Parentcraft classes are held throughout the year.
Times and venue are advertised on the notice board beside community reception.
Tel: (01929) 422231.
The community mental health nurses work with others in our mental health care team to provide care and a range of services to patients and carers within their own homes or at the health centre. Clients are referred via their doctor or other members of the primary health care team. To ask for further advice telephone (01929) 422231.
For patients unable to attend the local hospital, help in the form of treatment
or equipment can be given at home. Referral is made via your doctor or by other
members of the primary health care team.
Tel: (01929) 475136.
The community nursing team provides an 'in hours' nursing service to patients
and carers of all ages requiring moderate to high levels of care at home. The
nurses will provide specialist services for people too incapacitated to attend
the health centre. Referral is via the GP or by other members of the primary
health care team.
Tel: (01929) 422231.
Out of hours, ie from 6.00pm to 7.00am weekdays and throughout weekends and bank holidays, telephone 07788 925830.
There may be a GP registrar in post with us. They are fully qualified doctors who have worked in hospitals for several years but who have chosen general practice as a career and who will be gaining valuable experience by being based in our practice. At all times, they provide the same standard of care as the other doctors in the centre. If we would like to use your consultation for teaching purposes, you will be asked beforehand and you may, of course, decline.
Occasionally there will be a medical student in attendance whilst you are having a consultation with your doctor. However, if you prefer, you can ask your doctor to have the consultation without the student present.
