Doctors and Staff

The Doctors

Here at Oakwood Surgery, we have six General Practitioners (GPs): their details are featured below, together with their particular interest in certain conditions:

The Staff

Practice Manager

Our Practice Manager is Ruth Helliwell. If you have any enquiries then please do not hesitate to speak to her, she will be happy to help. You can speak to her by phone or face to face by asking at reception. 

Assistant Practice Manager

Our Assistant Practice Manager, Tina Bleackley, is available to help if you have any complaints. All matters are dealt with confidentially and you will therefore be taken to an available office within the surgery for your discussion.

Administrative Staff

Includes: Receptionists/Secretaries (12), Manager (1), Quality Supervisor (1), Admin Assistant (1), Clinical Coders (2) and Finance (1) who help to keep the Practice organised and running smoothly. You may talk to and seek advice from them in confidence and they will advise whom you should best see if your problem requires further attention.

Practice Nurses

Our Advanced Nurse Practitioner, five Practice Nurses and five Health Care Assistants are qualified to hold their own clinics and can advise on a variety of health problems. They run a wide range of clinics designed to prevent illness. They carry out other procedures including immunisation/travel advice, ear syringing, removal of sutures, wound/leg ulcer dressings and tests ordered by the Doctor. They also give vaccinations, blood pressure and cervical smear examinations as well as weight management advice etc. New patients will be invited to see a Nurse or Health Care Assistant to update their medical registration details and offer health advice.

Health Care Assistants

Our Health Care Assistants are available daily to offer new patient checks, dressings, blood pressure monitoring, ECGs, suture removal, blood tests, over 40's health checks, B12 injections, diabetic foot checks, etc.

Community Nurses

They look after patients who need nursing care (eg after discharge from hospital) in their own home. The hospital, practice nurse or doctor will arrange this for you. You can leave a message for the community nurses by calling the Single Point of Contact number on 0300 456 4951. There is an emergency service giving 24-hour cover including weekends and bank holidays also on that number.

Community Midwives

They care for expectant mothers and attend for the first few weeks after the baby is born. In certain cases they may attend a hospital confinement under the care of the GP.

Midwives are available Tuesday and Friday at the antenatal clinic at the surgery. They can be contacted Monday to Friday, between 09h30 and 16h30 - telephone 01623 676170.

Healthy Family Team (Previously Known As School Nurses & Community Health Visitors)
