Temporary changes to location

In order to facilitate essential renovation work to be carried out on the Health Centre, from Monday 4th July  some of our Clinicians will be located on the ground floor of the Health Centre for approximately 8 weeks.  We will have one of our team located at the ground floor reception who will direct patients to the appropriate waiting area.  Please bear with us during this time as staff are required to work on both floors which will add an additional strain on our already stretched resources.  Thank you for your patience

New Staff - We would like to introduce our new Practice Nurses 

Holly Atkinson

Hello, my name is Holly Atkinson, I started my role as a Practice Nurse with Pallion Family Practice around 6 months ago. Prior to that, I worked 4 years in acute cardiology. 

 

As this role is very new to me, I am carrying out lots of different training to build my knowledge in a variety of subjects suitable for my role. 

 

In my short time here, everyone has been so kind and welcoming. I am looking forward to completing the rest of my training and working alongside everyone at Pallion Family Practice.

Hi, my name is Gill, I have recently joined the practice from a Community setting where I started my nursing career.

I have gained knowledge in long term conditions which include asthma, COPD, wound care, palliative and end of life care. I have recently completed courses in childhood immunisation and cytology screening and I am looking forward to commencing my diabetes training in the near future.

I am privileged to be working with a fantastic team of healthcare professionals to promote holistic care for patients.
