Healthcare Professionals

Healthcare Professionals

Manor View Practice has embraced the NHS model of using allied healthcare professionals. We have three prescribing advanced nurse care practitioners and a paramedic who are able to deal with common complaints over a longer face to face appointment. We also have four clinical pharmacists who assist the practice with looking after patients with long-term conditions and medication reviews. This is alongside our practice nurses, healthcare assistants and phlebotomists. The practice has invested heavily in these staff members to provide the best service possible for our patients, whilst increasing the number of available appointments to patients on a daily basis.

Phlebotomists

Phlebotomists are people trained to take bloods from patients for clinical reasons.

Health Care Assistants (HCAs)

HCAs are experienced professionals who carry out a variety of roles including giving lifestyle advice, running smoking cessation clinics, removal of stitches, performing ECGs, running warfarin clinics and giving immunisations.

Practice Nurses

Practice nurses are experienced healthcare professionals who plan and provide nursing care, treatment and health education to patients of all ages. They also see patient for reviews of their long-term conditions, smear tests, dressings, travel clinics, childhood immunisations among others.

Advanced Nurse Practitioners in Primary Care

Advanced nurse practitioners are Registered nurses who have done extra training and academic qualifications to be able to examine, assess, make diagnoses, treat, prescribe and make referrals for patients who present with undiagnosed / undifferentiated problems.

Paramedic in Primary Care

A paramedic in primary care is a practitioner who has done extra training and academic qualifications to be able to examine, assess, make diagnoses, treat and make referrals for patients who present with undiagnosed / undifferentiated problems.

Clinical Pharmacist in Primary Care

Clinical pharmacists are increasingly working as part of general practice teams. They are highly qualified experts in medicines and can help people in a range of ways. This includes carrying out structured medication reviews for patients with ongoing health problems and improving patient safety, outcomes and value through a person-centred approach. They see patients with long term conditions such as diabetes, COPD and asthma.

First Contact Practitioner (FCP)

A First Contact Practitioner (FCP) is a physiotherapist who is professionally qualified to treat patients without a referral from a GP or other healthcare professional. FCPs provide the first point of contact whereby those who visit a GP for a musculoskeletal (MSK) problem will instead have an appointment with an FCP physiotherapist.
