The Practice is approved for the training of doctors new to general practice. These doctors are attached as Registrars to the practice for a year.
We also often have medical and nursing students, as well as trainee medical secretaries working with the practice team to gain practical experience.
Nurse Practitioner Partner
Advanced Healthcare Assistant
Healthcare assistants support practice nurses with their daily work and carry out tasks such as phlebotomy (drawing blood), ECGs, doppler measurements. They may act as a chaperone when a patient or doctor requests one.
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.
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 in turn are supported by a strong Administration team who perform other important tasks such as issuing repeat prescriptions and dealing with prescription enquiries; dealing with financial claims; dealing with patient records and correspondence along with carrying out searches and practice audits.
We have community nurses attached to the Practice and they have an office in our Par surgery and can be contacted on 01726 813431.
Our Health Visitors have an office in our Par Surgery and can be contacted on 01726 816232.
We have counsellors working with the Practice who deal with a wide range of problems including alcohol and substance abuse. Referral to counsellors is made through the doctors.
Our Midwife, Alex, runs clinics in Par and Fowey on alternate Tuesdays. These are by appointment which can be made with Alex directly or by contacting Reception.
Our attached MacMillan Nurse, Kath, is in regular contact with the GPs and accepts referrals directly from them. If you feel you would benefit from her services, please contact your GP and request a referral, who will discuss the merits of this with you and refer you as appropriate.
Our attached Community Matron is Bev Bromley who works hard with the GPs to assist patients to remain in their homes if that is their wish. She is a huge source of support to our staff and patients alike.
Community Frailty Nurse
Kate Daly has been seconded to work with Three Harbours, our collaboration with Lostwithiel and Middleway. She assists with our more vulnerable patients and those that require additional support.
