The secretaries are responsible for dealing with referral letters and any medical reports requested by outside bodies. They are based at Chester Road.
These ladies are here to help you and are your link with the rest of the healthcare team. If you have any enquiries our reception staff are here to help you, but please remember they have a difficult job to do with telephone calls and queries coming from every direction. They may ask you one or two questions in relation to your request. They have been asked to do this, but the information you give them will always be treated in confidence as they are bound by the same rules of confidentiality as the doctors and nurses. Their job is very demanding so please be patient.
There is a team of nurses attached to our practice led by Sister Patricia Frainey. The nurses deal with patients requiring nursing at home who are housebound, elderly or terminally ill. They also run clinics at various locations where they attend to dressings etc. They work closely with the doctors and can be contacted on 0300 323 0303.

There is a team of health visitors who give advice and support to mothers and children, including monitoring of normal growth and development. The service works closely with the GPs and community paediatric services. The health visitors can be contacted at either the Delamere Centre Tel 0161 864 0300 or Seymour Grove Tel 0161 872 5672.
There is also a team of health visitors who deal with the elderly. They can help with arranging help at home, day care, welfare issues and can also put patients and their families in touch with any relevant organisations. If you feel you may need their help please contact the surgery and we will pass your details over to the team.
