The roles of our clinicians! 

Below is an overview of what our clinical staff can help patients with at Radford Medical Practice and the Student Health Centre. We often ask for a brief description of the problem when patients book an appointment and this is so that we can ensure that patients receive the best care possible. 

GPs/ Doctors

Depending on the patient’s concerns, doctors can help the patient by giving information, advice and reassurance. They can prescribe medication if necessary and they can refer the patient on for further care such as blood tests or physiotherapy in order to make to patient feel better. Our doctors deal with a variety of problems including physical, cultural, social and psychological matters.

Practice Nurses

Our nurses are holistic caregivers for our patients and can carry out a variety of tasks. They can help to manage a patient’s physical requirements, prevent future illnesses, provide advice and help to treat heath conditions. A nurse’s role can include asthma reviews, advice and issuing contraception, dressings and more. Ask us at reception to find out how a nurse can help you!

Healthcare Assistants 

Our HCAs are trained to carry out a variety of tasks. They also help by carrying out tasks which patients do not need to see a nurse or doctor for, such as appointments for blood pressure checks, vaccinations or removals of sutures. To find out how a HCA can help you, ask us at reception!
