Ms Lisa Huckstepp (f)
Lisa is a Nurse Practitioner. She has gained additional qualifications for health assessment and is qualified to prescribe. She is employed here to see patients for a range of minor illnesses and urgent care problems as well as ongoing long term conditions.
Our reception staff will signpost you to Lisa if your medical problem is something that can dealt with by her and does not require you to see a GP.
Our Nurses are available by appointment. They can give advice regarding minor illnesses, injuries, diet and travel immunisations. They perform a full range of Nursing procedures including injections, dressings, urine testing and ear syringing. They also offer clinics for the following: contraception, asthma, diabetic, high blood pressure and smoking cessation clinics.
Our Practices Nurses are Hazel (3 days a week) Cate (4 days a week) Rebecca (4 days a week) and Lucy (4 days a week).
We have three Health Care Assistants – Gwen, Charlotte and Penny who are able to offer blood pressure monitoring, minor wound management, smoking cessation advice and perform all NHS health checks. In many cases our receptionists will signpost you to a HCA rather than a practice nurse.
Lisa is our Nursing team leader and a Nurse Practitioner who is able to treat and prescribe for most minor injuries and illnesses. You will be directed by reception to the most appropriate member of the team to deal with your problem. This will not always be a doctor
