Pharmacists

At Queens Park we have two Pharmacists who act as a practice advisor. Their job is to advise the Doctors on drug therapy and medicinal issues. They may sometimes ask to see patients to discuss their medication.

Community Midwives

You will be allocated a Midwife depending on which area you are living in. She will visit you at your home and will provide ante-natal and post-natal care and offer advice and details of relaxation classes and parent craft.

Should you need to contact a Midwife, your Doctor’s Receptionist will be able to provide you with the correct telephone number.

Please inform your Doctor’s Receptionist on confirmation of a positive pregnancy test.

Community Nurses

Our team of Community Nurses provide nursing assistance for patients confined to their homes. They are based at the Link Centre attached to our building and collect any messages or calls from the Receptionists several times a day.

Please contact your Doctor’s Receptionist if you require their care.

Community Matrons

In 2006 The Dept of Health recognised that people with a serious long term condition or a complex range of conditions, need extra assistance. At Queens Park we have Community Matrons working with us to offer this service. Both are highly experienced senior nurses who can work closely with yourself and your Doctor to plan and organise your care. They will also act as your ‘case-manager’, being the single point of contact to co-ordinate your health and social needs, or provide support and advice for you and your family.

Community Psychiatric Nurses

You will be referred to one of our CPNs by your Doctor. They provide specialised advice to patients and families in their homes and are based at Clifton House in Stockton.

Health Visitors

Your Health Visitor will be allocated to you depending on the area you are living in. If you are unsure who your health Visitor is please contact your Receptionist who will be able to provide you with a name and contact telephone number. Your Health Visitor will carry out child development/surveillance and is available to offer help and advice regarding family issues and may also be able to prescribe certain medication for you.

Counsellors

The practice has two BACD (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) accredited counsellors who provide short term therapy. Counselling can help a wide range of problems.

There are times for most of us when we find it difficult to cope with life, i.e., memories from the past, painful events in the present and worries about the future. You will be referred by your Doctor if it is thought the service will be of benefit to you.

Attached Staff

Cognitive Behaviour Therapist

Dietician

A hospital dietician holds a clinic every fortnight at the surgery for newly diagnosed patients with Diabetes. You will be referred by your Doctor or a Practice Nurse to see the dietician to obtain advice on all dietary issues.
