Nurses

Sister Fiona Bennet (f)
MA, RGN, RM, CIDC, FP Cert.

The Practice Nurses are involved in many activities in the surgery, including chronic disease management, health promotion, women's health, smear taking, wound care and management.  They are also responsible for organising travel vaccinations.

Sister Bennet has a special interest in the management of diabetes and is a nurse prescriber. Sister Waterfield has a special interest in the management of asthma and COPD.

Appointments can be made directly, or if appropriate, after consultation with your doctor. Nurses appointments cannot be booked online. They work from the treatment room in the surgery. 

Healthcare Assistants

Mrs Rhonda Miller (f)

Please note that with changing roles, most of your routinue blood samples, blood pressure readings and height and weight recordings will now be taken by our highly trained Health Care Support Worker (HCSW)Rhonda Miller. It is usually more appropriate, if you require blood samples taken, to make an appointment with our HCA instead of the practice nurses. Rhonda is also trained in the removal of stitches, wound care and is able to give influenza vaccinations.
