Sally (f)

Gill is based at The College Yard Surgery while all other members of the nursing team work at both sites covering all aspects of nursing including:  immunisations, travel vaccines, well man/woman checks, ear syringing, removal of stitches, dressings, cervical smear screening, new patient checks, NHS health checks, blood pressure checks and continence assessments.

Healthcare Assistants


Our healthcare assistant holds clinics at The College Yard Surgery all day on a Wednesday and Friday morning, and all day on Thursday at The Highnam Surgery. She is trained to take blood samples, measure height, weight, blood pressure, check urine, remove sutures and change dressings. She is qualified and highly skilled in assisting people who are wishing to give up smoking. Any patient new to the practice requires a new patient check which is carried out by the healthcare assistant.


Phlebotomists take blood samples at both sites every week. A phlebotomist works at The Highnam Surgery on a Wednesday morning and at the College Yard Surgery on a Tuesday afternoon. They are the only nurses who can take blood samples for Warfarin testing. Phlebotomists are able to take bloods both in The Edward Jenner Clinic at Gloucester Royal Hospital and in the surgery.
