When should I see a Nurse?
Nurses based at our practice treat patients for a wide range of common conditions (e.g. minor injuries/illnesses, removing stitches, travel vaccinations, immunisations and so on). You can expect to see a nurse within one working day.
Our practice nurses are also specially trained to run routine clinics for certain conditions, such as diabetes and heart disease. (Each of our nurses specialises in a different area, so you need to book ahead with the most appropriate person). Our reception staff will be able to advise whether a nurse appointment is appropriate.
Nursing Care at Home
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 Southern Health and are based at Gosport War Memorial. You can contact them directly on 02392 794796.
If you have an illness or incapacity that means that you need nursing care in your own home, one of the district nurses 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 a hospital. District nurses provide wound care, palliative care, continence advice, health promotion advice and advice on coordinating care packages. If you move permanently into a care home locally, the district nurse may be able to continue your care. Your GP may also be willing to continue to care for you.
Front line staff trained to deal with all enquiries and difficulties. They are bound by the same rules of confidentiality as the rest of the healthcare team.
The reception team may ask what the problem is when you book an appointment, this is to ensure that you get to see the most appropriate Clinician as soon as possible.
District nurses are attached to the practice and see patients referred to them by either the hospital or the practice.
A health visitor is a registered nurse who has received training particularly related to babies, children and pregnant women. Their role is to provide families with children under five years old with support and advice around the general aspects of mental, physical and social wellbeing.
The community midwives are based at Gosport War Memorial Hospital Blake Ward
