Joanne is an experienced nurse practitioner, joining the Fountain in August 2016. She can diagnose, prescribe and refer if necessary for the full range of conditions.
The team of nurses and healthcare assistants run their appointment system alongside the doctors and are able to advise you on a variety of health problems.
They perform the following routine procedures: administering vaccinations, cervical smear tests, ECGs, contraceptive advice, issuing the morning after pill, blood tests, ear syringing, dressing wounds and routine health checks.
In addition, our qualified nursing team, rather than the doctor, care for all long-term conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, heart problems and asthma. During your consultation all medication relating to your condition will be reviewed and updated.
Assistant Practice Manager
We have a team of receptionists that are here to help you in a friendly manner.
Our receptionists are required to take basic details of the nature of your appointment to ensure it is appropriately booked.
Anything you share with them will be treated in confidence and is purely for the use of the clinician.
Once your pregnancy has been confirmed you need to make an initial appointment to see one of the midwives, Debbie or Dawn, who will talk you through the next steps including your referral to the hospital of choice.
The midwives, in consultation with the doctor, will care for you and your baby right through to the birth.
Your doctor will conduct your postnatal check and baby’s eight-week check following its birth.
Midwife clinics are held at the surgery on a Wednesday afternoon for first bookings and Thursday afternoons for follow-up clinics.
Appointments for midwives may be booked through reception.
This practice has a close working relationship with its health visitors. The health visitors offer timed appointments.
Health visitors can be contacted via their own reception staff on (01636) 594839.
