MMC Options Presentation

CHANGES TO YOUR USUAL DOCTOR:  During the merger process of the last few months we have had to make a number of changes to the doctors' team.  This means we have had to move 10% of our patients to new usual doctors.  We are sending out text messages, emails and some letters to let you know if this applies to you.  If you have been moved, we are really sorry as we know patients and doctors often develop close relationships, and it can be frustrating having to get to know and to trust someone again.  However, please be patient and give it a go.  The new doctors we have are caring, conscientious and highly competent.

Community Midwives

If you are expecting a baby please see your GP who will then refer you on to our team of midwives. They are part of the team that looks after expectant mothers before, during and after childbirth. You need to see a midwife preferably before you are 10 weeks pregnant. During pregnancy, parents soon get to know their midwife very well and feel that they always have a "friend" to help them along. In addition to supporting and caring for you, they will be able to give you advice about antenatal testing, healthy eating, exercise, sexual matters and baby feeding ... in fact anything that you might want to talk about.

Community Nurses

Our District nurses Rachel Slater, Suzy Poole, Caroline Wheatley, Charlotte Steele, Na'amah Goddard and Adannay Chobban can visit you at home if you are housebound. They are able to provide care which includes support for patients and their carers during periods of illness, wound care including post-operative care, assessment of continence and catheterisation.

Health Visitors

Our Health Visitors are Liz Marshall, Rachel Richards, Judy Comont, Alison Mawer and Abigail Pridham-Field. They are able to discuss child and family health issues at home or in the Health Centre. Regular Child Health clinics are held to discuss issues such as sleep, behaviour, nutrition and toilet training. Health Visitors provide support to families including emotional support following the birth of a baby. Post-natal groups are run for first time parents. They also work outside the practice in family centres, schools and community centres supporting public health initiatives. This work includes health promotion, such as healthy eating and smoking cessation to a wider community.

Attached Staff

Psychologist/Counsellor

Your mental health is as important to us as your physical health. Talking about how you feel can be beneficial in many ways. All of the doctors, nurses and health visitors are happy to listen to you; we also have a counsellor and a psychologist in the surgery each week to give more in depth help. Please see your GP if you feel you would benefit from their help.

Physiotherapist

If you have any problems with joint pains, arthritis, immobility or sports injuries, our physiotherapists Viv Gleave & Associates will help you. Please contact your GP to arrange a referral. We are fortunate that this is an NHS service with waiting times well below those experienced elsewhere.

Dentist

The dental team have now moved to the new building to the right of the main surgery entrance. Dr Sharma is in charge of the NHS Dental Practice at Bury Knowle. She and her associates are able to take new NHS patients. The dental practice is open Monday to Friday between 8.30am and 1pm and 2pm until 5pm. Please contact the dental reception team on 01865 308400.
