Practice nurses are qualified nurses. They can help with health issues such as family planning advice, healthy living advice, blood pressure checks, ear syringing, suture removals, new patient registration checks, dressings, cervical smears etc. The practice nurse also runs clinics for long-term health conditions such as asthma and diabetes.
The practice manager is involved in managing most aspects of the practice and making sure that the right systems are in place to provide a high quality of patient care, suitable premises, proper equipment, patient safety, etc. The practice manager supports the GPs and other medical professionals with delivering patient services and also helps to develop services to enhance patient care.
The reception team provides 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 patient appointments with the GPs and nurses. They also perform other important tasks such as registering new patients, and dealing with administrative work.
