We are delighted to inform our patients that we now have a new Practice Nurse, Jane Brooks who is our newly appointed Nurse care coordinator for all patients aged 75 years and over. In addition to this role Jane will also assist with patients who are on the at risk of an unplanned admission register. Patients who have been placed on this register will receive a care plan which will be put together by the patients named GP and nurse coordinator.
Jane's role will include liaising with other agencies such as community rehabilitation, long term conditions nurse and district nursing to promote a good standard of care for patients.
All these patients will have a designated named GP, though you are still free to see any GP you wish within the practice.
