PCN Clinical Pharmacists

Clinical pharmacists and pharmacy technicians are experts in medicines and how they are used. We are very fortunate to have a pharmacy team as they can help our doctors and nurses to spend more time with patients while they deal with the majority of medicine-related queries. Our clinical pharmacists and pharmacy technicians deal with repeat prescriptions, medication reviews, common minor ailments, urgent medication requests and deal with medication for patients recently discharged from hospital. Our GPs may ask our pharmacy team to get in touch with you if you take lots of medications from time to time. This is to review your symptoms and check they’re still the best medications to be on. Where better, newer alternatives are available, they’ll discuss this with you and your GP.

SHIRLEY MOTH

Practice Manager

Shirley is our Practice Manager. She is responsible for the day to day running of the Practice. She welcomes any comments or suggestions which might help us to improve our service to you. Shirley is the person you should contact if you have a complaint.

Reception

Receptionists provide an important link for patients with the practice and are your initial contact point for general enquiries. They can provide basic information on services and results and direct you to the right person depending on your health issue or query. Receptionists make most of the patient appointments with the GPs and nurses. They also perform other important tasks such as issuing repeat prescriptions and dealing with prescription enquiries, dealing with financial claims, dealing with patient records and carrying out searches and practice audits. We have a large team of friendly office and reception staff. They have a difficult job to do, with phone calls and enquiries from every direction. Please treat them courteously. When telephoning for medical attention the receptionist may ask for a few details. They have been trained to make these enquiries so that we can help you in the most appropriate way.

District Nurses

District Nurses work in partnership with General Practitioners (GPs), Hospitals, Health Visitors, Specialist Nurses and Social Services to deliver skilled patient-focused nursing care and support to individuals and their carers in a variety of non-hospital settings including patients’ homes, GP surgeries and residential homes. District Nurses have traditionally offered their expertise in wound and leg ulcer management, palliative care and rehabilitation to patients with specific nursing needs. Their role is now expanding to develop their prescribing and physical assessment skills and the health education and management of patients living with chronic diseases in the community who are unable to attend their GP practice. New initiatives such as intravenous therapies within the home are enabling patients to be discharged early from hospital and are also preventing unnecessary hospital admission. District nurses are committed to a future in which patients are not only helped through periods of ill health, but are also given advice and support to enable them to maintain and improve their general health and well being. They can be contacted directly on: 0300 131 4636.

Health Visitors

Health Visitors are qualified nurses with special training and experience in child health, health promotion and education. They offer practical support and advice in a host of diverse situations. Many people think that health visitors only visit new babies and their families at home - this is not the complete picture. Health Visitors aim to promote the health of the whole community. The Health Visitors can be contacted on 01323 432300 or esht.hv-eastbourne@nhs.net. Your address determines who will be your Health Visitor as they work geographically. Any family who has a child can access the service.
