Doctors in Training
Kelvingrove Medical Centre is a training Practice and we have Doctors in training at the Surgery throughout the year.
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. Our Practice Nurses are:-
Nurse Team Leader
Healthcare assistants support practice nurses with their daily work and carry out tasks such as dressings, ECG, blood pressure measurement and new patient checks. They may act as a chaperone when a patient or doctor requests one.
Our triage team assists doctors by taking on triage calls, acute appointments and home visits.
Advanced Clinical Practitioner
The practice manager is involved in managing all of the business aspects of the practice such as making sure that the right systems are in place to provide a high quality of patient care, human resources, finance, patient safety, premises and equipment and information technology. The practice manager supports the GPs and other medical professionals with delivering patient services and also helps to develop extended services to enhance patient care.
The secretaries and administration staff support the healthcare team with all aspects of administration within the Practice.
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 and maintaining accurate patient records.
The midwife attached to our Practice is one of the local team of midwives who works with the doctors to guide and provide pregnancy advice and monitoring. Clinics are held twice weekly at the Practice. Please note that, at your first antenatal appointment (8-10weeks pregnant) the midwife will need to see you on your own for the first 30 minutes, to discuss issues of a personal nature. To contact a midwife, please ring the midwifery office at Babington Hospital on 01773 525085.
The Heanor Community Nurses visit the practice every day, working closely with the practice and can be contacted through reception if you need them. They are primarily available to give nursing care to patients in their homes, who are unable to attend the surgery.
A health visitor is a registered nurse who has received training particularly related to babies, children and pregnant women. Their role is to provide families with children under five years old with support and advice around the general aspects of mental, physical and social wellbeing.
If you feel you need to see a counsellor, you can see a GP or self refer
