What I Do

I provide quality care for patients, especially those who are housebound or elderly.

Patients are often relieved to know a healthcare professional can visit them at home rather than them having to attend the GP surgery.

How I Support Patients

As well as we annual diabetes or hypertension reviews, I give advice on lifestyle and healthy living.

I can refer to other services if needed, ie Social Prescribing. Social Services.

I like to give quality time for a conversation as many patients live alone, and may have few or no visitors.
