Mr Patrick Legg is our Practice Manager. He is responsible for the administration and smooth running of the practice. If you wish to make an enquiry, comment or a complaint about the administrative or non-medical aspects of your health treatment, please contact the surgery either by calling (01983) 817200 or emailing IWCCG.Towerhouse@nhs.net
Our receptionists are here to help you. They will be your first contact with the practice and may ask you for further details about your request for an appointment or home visit. This is to ensure that we can assist you efficiently and ensure that you see the right person. They are bound by the same rules of confidentiality as the doctors and nurses. It may be that you can be seen and treated sooner by one of our practice nurses, rather than a doctor.
Our practice nurses see patients by appointment. They are involved in all the various screening programmes as well as ear syringing, routine blood pressure checks, undertaking cardiograms, cervical smears, coil fittings & microsuction etc. They can offer advice on numerous health topics. They assist in all the minor operations that are carried out and are fully competent at carrying out general health checks. They also run the annual flu clinics.
Our nurse practitioners can help with the following health matters: coughs and colds, chest infection, sinus infection, ear and/or eye infection, cellulitis, wound infections, thrush (oral and vaginal), head lice, threadworms, athletes foot, eczema, chicken pox, scabies, urine infections, piles (if already diagnosed by GP), some repeat prescriptions, contraceptive pills, creams, minor constipation, impetigo, infected finger/nails and bites.
The practice’s healthcare assistants also see patients by appointment. All new patients to the surgery will be seen for a health check. They assist the practice nurses in several clinics, and are involved in undertaking ECGs, NHS health checks plus blood pressure and glucometer tests.
The local community nurse team are based within the Practice, but are part of the Island’s wider Community Nurse Team who are managed by the IOW NHS Trust. They will care for, treat and give advice to patients who are housebound. They may be contacted direct on (01983) 552533). At other times there is an answer machine on this number where non-urgent messages may be left.
