Practice Manager

Mrs Katie Gemmell is our acting practice manager. She is responsible for the day-to-day management of the practice ensuring we deliver care to our patients in an efficient and effective way.

Nurses

Our practice nurses see patients by appointment. They are involved in the screening programmes as well as taking blood samples, routine blood pressure checks, undertaking electrocardiograms (ECG) and cervical smears. 

They can offer advice on numerous health topics including asthma, diabetes, and heart disease prevention, well woman/man checks, family planning and HRT.

It is possible to request a telephone call from the practice nurse, depending on when the request comes in you will be contacted either the same day or the following day, please try to give a landline telephone number.

All our Registered Nurses are highly experienced and have been with us for many years. They all run routine Practice Nurse Surgeries and they have all undertaken extended training and specialise in certain areas.

We have had a new nurse Becca join the team and she has been busying undergoing lots of extended training. She will work mainly out of the Simpson Centre but will occasionally cover at the Penn Surgery. She will be taking over the Child Immunisation Clinic at the Simpson Centre.
