Health Visitors

Health Visitors

The Health Visitors are trained nurses with additional qualifications in Health Visiting. Health Visiting is aimed at the promotion of health and prevention of ill health, contributing to individual and family health and social well-being. Tel: 01626 324526
They offer antenatal and post-natal support for families and Child Health Promotion checks for all children under 5 years, although Immunisation clinics are held regularly at Cricketfield by the Practice Nurses for babies and children up to pre-school.
Health Visitors are available to discuss parental concerns about feeding and sleep problems, teething, toilet training, temper tantrums and common childhood illnesses. They also participate in National Promotion days such as Stop Smoking, Cancer Awareness and Child Safety.

Wellbeing Coordinators

In 2019 we will have a Mental Health Practitioner available at Cricketfield Surgery one day a week.

We will also have a Wellbeing Coordinator from Kingscare in once a month for patients to see if they may benefit from the services provided by Kingscare.

Attached Staff

Locums

The surgery does engage the services of Locum GPs and Nurses to help provide cover for staff absence and holidays. These are agency or self-employed clinical staff but they still have to comply with the relevant medical council's registration regulations and adhere to our Practice's policies, procedures and protocols. We have often worked with our locums over a period of years so we know them very well and they are an important part of the team.
