Omayya Ali (f)
Physician Associate

Physician Associates are healthcare professionals who work alongside doctors in providing medical care as an integral part of the multidisciplinary team, with roles including: seeing patients with long-term conditions, taking medical histories & physical examinations, developing management plans and making referrals. Physician Associates work autonomously with appropriate support from a doctor

Advanced Clinical Practitioners come from a range of professional backgrounds such as nursing, paramedics, and pharmacy. They are healthcare professionals educated to Master’s level and have developed the skills and knowledge to manage acute and long-term conditions in primary care, similar to physician associates.

Our Nurses and Healthcare Assistants

All our nurses hold regular clinics and deal with chronic disease monitoring, family planning advice including emergency contraception (morning after pill), HRT, smear tests, immunisations, foreign travel, dressings, health advice, etc. Julie also deals with assessment and treatment of minor illness. Your doctor may also refer you to a nurse for follow-up of various conditions or you may receive an invitation through the post, or a reminder text message to your mobile phone. Make your appointment at reception giving the reason for your visit so the Service Advisor can book you in with the correct nurse for the correct length of time and check blood tests have been completed if necessary.

Behind the scenes all of our administrative staff form an integral part of our team and are a great asset, helping the doctors, nurses and Service Advisers to spend more time with patients. Our Service Advisers have undergone training and complete many varied tasks. Although their main role is to help you to see your doctor or nurse and get the best from our services, they also complete a wide range of tasks, and are not ‘just receptionists’. Please help them by providing the information they request.
