Our Advanced Nurse Practitioners run the Minor Ailments Clinic.
Practice nurses are qualified and registered nurses. They can help with health issues such as family planning, healthy living advice, blood pressure checks and dressings. The practice nurses run clinics for long-term health conditions such as asthma or diabetes and carry out cervical smears.
Healthcare assistants support practice nurses with their daily work and carry out tasks such as phlebotomy (drawing blood), blood pressure measurement and new patient checks. They may act as a chaperone when a patient or doctor requests one.
Ruth joined Shawbirch Medical Centre in April 2015. Ruth is responsible for the running of the Medical Centre on a day to day basis and is the Practice Member on the Patient Access Working Group. Ruth comes with a wealth of knowledge on the practice’s clinical system (EMIS) as she was a senior trainer with them before joining us. She is, therefore, able to assist us in ensuring that our systems are used to their full capacity.

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.
