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, minor ailment clinics 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.

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 Medical Secretaries provide a secretarial service to our GPs including the arranging of admissions, appointments at hospital and/or other providers and providing invoices for any non-NHS work.
Our midwives hold regular clinics at bath surgeries and also make home visits to provide antenatal and postnatal care. They work with the GPs to give advice about the routine tests and services which will be offered to you. Please ask at reception if you need a telephone number to contact a midwife. We do not print them in our leaflet because they work with mobile phones and they often change.
Our community nurses (district nurses) are based at Kington Hospital. They give care at home for acute or chronic illnesses and after discharge from hospital. They can also organise and provide mobility aids and nursing equipment for carers and patients. Some of this equipment has been provided by patient donations to the Surgery Equipment Fund and can be lent to patients.
To contact the community nurses please ring 01544 230010.
Our health visitor will offer help and advice on under 5’s and general child development. She sees patients by appointment in their homes and in the surgeries.

Tracy Price is our Social Prescriber.
The social prescribing link worker role has emerged over the past few years and has mainly been pioneered by voluntary sector organisations, working in partnership with GP practices and other referral agencies. Link workers are employed in non-clinical roles. They are recruited for their listening skills, empathy and ability to support people.
Social prescribing link workers help to reduce health inequalities by supporting people to unpick complex issues affecting their wellbeing. They enable people to have more control over their lives, develop skills and give their time to others, through involvement in community groups. Link workers visit people in their homes, where needed.
Social prescribing particularly works for a wide range of people, including people:
