Mrs Kathryn Burge
Trainee Practice Manager
Our receptionists are usually the first point of contact and are here to help you. They have a lot of information to hand and in most cases will be able to help with your enquiry, ensuring you see the most appropriate clinician. Nonetheless, it is your right to request to talk only to the doctor. Anything that is discussed with the receptionists or any other member of the team is treated in strict confidence. You have a right to be treated courteously, and our receptionists also have a right to be treated courteously by you. We can offer a degree of privacy at a separate reception booth if your enquiry is sensitive. Please respect the privacy of other patients by standing well back from the reception desk until your turn. The main telephone line is 01736 710505, which opens at 08:30 Monday to Friday. Please ring this number to speak to a receptionist about any enquiry, to arrange a home visit or telephone consultation.
We work closely with other healthcare professionals who are part of our Primary Health Care Team working in the community, such as the district nursing team, midwives and health visitors. These services are provided by the Kernow Clinical Commissioning Group (KCCG)
If you have an illness or incapacity that means that you need nursing care in your own home, the district nursing team will visit you. Patients who are likely to benefit from this service include the housebound, the elderly, people with a terminal illness, and those who have recently been discharged from hospital. District nurses provide wound care, palliative care, continence advice, health promotion advice and advice on co-ordinating care packages. If you move permanently into a care home locally, the district nurse may be able to continue your care. Your GP will be able to continue to care for you if the care home is within our practice area. The District nurses can be contacted on 01736 754991 or through reception on 01736 710505.
The Community Matron visits patients with multiple long term conditions and complex needs, to help improve quality of life for patients and carers; and also to help prevent unplanned admissions to hospital. She can be contacted through reception, on 01736 710505.
Our Midwife, Health Visitor, practice-based Counsellor and Cornwall Alcohol and Drugs Agency Counsellor all hold regular clinics at the surgery. They can be contacted through reception, on 01736 710505.
Ms Ruth Tod, Community Care Coordinator
The primary focus of the role is to improve care coordination within primary care, where a community matron is not involved, working as part of the multidisciplinary team across the locality, identifying patients who the GP feels may benefit from coordination of services. This work primarily focuses around supporting patients on discharge from hospital and to prevent unnecessary admission.
Symon Stephens from Volunteer Cornwall is our Social Prescribing Link Worker. This is a non-clinical role working with individuals connecting them with their local community facilities to improve well-being and tackle social isolation. People are referred to him by their GP or other healthcare professional to provide an holistic intervention.
