District Nurses

Direct Line: 01633 636408

A district nursing team is located in the community, led by a Team Leader. They are responsible for all the community nursing care in the practice.

The doctors will refer patients to the district nurse as appropriate. Patients may also be referred to the district nurse by other means eg via hospital discharge, self-referral, local clinics, etc.

Community Midwife

We have one midwife attached to our surgery - Mrs Rhian Kavanagh. She assists the doctors in jointly running the antenatal clinic and provides postnatal care of up to 10 days after the baby is born.

For any queries please contact reception for the relevant telephone number.


Receptionists - Mrs Elaine Gillanders, Miss Laura Westlake, Miss Clair Jenson, Mrs Louise Hopkins, Mrs Sally Howells, Mrs Slater, Mrs Edwards and Rhys Williams

Our receptionists have a difficult job and strive to do their best at all times. They sometimes need to ask questions which may appear irritating or irrelevant but are necessary in order to deal with the query as quickly and efficiently as possible. Please assist them by giving them all the necessary information.  DO NOT ABUSE THE STAFF VERBALLY OR OTHERWISE. WE DO NOT TOLERATE ANY FORM OF ABUSE.
