Paramedic

We are fortunate to have a paramedic practitioner, Andrew Jones, who performs minor illness clinics as well as assisting with urgent care.

GP Training

Our practice is a training/teaching practice. Our GP registrars are fully qualified and have a great deal of hospital experience. Registrars are attached to our practice for four, six or twelve months and patients often find their fresh, enthusiastic approach complements to the service we offer.

The registrars usually become general practitioners after completing their training, and are at all times encouraged to seek advice, when required, from the practice partners. As part of the registrars’ training and examination process, there is a requirement to video a number of consultations. Your written permission would always be sought for this.

We undertake a program of teaching medical students and express our thanks to all our patients and staff for their co-operation in this process. A strict protocol is followed: the receptionist will inform a patient that a medical student will be present and will seek consent before the consultation starts.

Practice Team

Practice Manager

The practice manager Sandra Kiley is responsible for the administration of the practice and is happy to hear your views and suggestions about the service offered by the practice.

Reception Team / Prescription Clerk / Secretary

The staff behind the reception desk will assist you in making appointments to see your doctor, organize repeat prescriptions, give out test results and answer numerous and varied questions. It is a legal requirement that confidentiality of patients’ records is maintained at the highest level by all staff.

Attached Staff

The Swansea Bay University Health Board employs pharmacists, district nurses and health visitors that regularly work with us to help deliver your care.

PHARMACISTS

The practice has a team of pharmacists who will see patients on our behalf for medication reviews, polypharmacy reviews, blood pressure management and anticoagulation.

DISTRICT NURSES

The district nursing team consists of sisters, staff nurses and enrolled and auxiliary nurses. The nurses are based in a Local Central Hub.

Their duties include visiting patients of any age in their homes, giving practical assistance or offering professional advice. Each patient’s needs are assessed and the care and treatment is planned accordingly. District nursing sisters are experienced registered general nurses with a certificate or diploma in district nursing.

If you need a district nurse to visit you at home, or for any other district nursing enquiries, you can contact them on 01792 636007.

The health visitor is a specially qualified nurse who can provide information, advice and support to families with children.  It is part of their role to visit children under five and they are available in the surgery at their regular baby clinic.

The health visitor may be contacted on the following number: St. Thomas and West Cross 01792 653992.
