Practice Nurses

Between them, Sue Saxey, Claire Dunn and Julie Port look after most of the chronic disease management in the practice, carry out smears, give travel and lifestyle advice, administer dressings and deal with minor illness.   Sue has a BSc (Hons) in Nursing Studies and has a particular interest in diabetes.  Claire’s background is in community nursing and she has recently completed a Paediatric Asthma Diploma.  Julie joined us with an extensive background in hospital nursing specialising in surgical care.

The team is supplemented by our Healthcare Assistants, Katy Smith and Amanda Gardiner, who assist the nurses with some of their tasks.  Katy also helps with Healthzone, the teenage drop-in clinic.

District Nurse, Health Visitor, and Midwife

We work closely with our District Nurses, Health Visitors and Midwives.  They are all based at Petersfield Hospital but come into the practice regularly and are also invited to our clinical team meetings.
