What I Do

My role is currently to provide home visits to patients at 4 surgeries across the primary care network for patients who are housebound or otherwise unable to attend the surgery. I triage, carry out assessments & treat acute conditions & illnesses.

How I Support Patients

I previously worked for the North East Ambulance Service working on Emergency Care Ambulances, before qualifying as a Paramedic from Teesside University in 2017. I advanced to work on the Rapid Response Vehicle in 2019. Although I attended emergency incidents, I also worked increasingly alongside primary care with GPs, district nurses & palliative care teams, which is where my interest in primary care developed.

Get in touch

Referrals can be made to the GP, other healthcare professionals, other medical or social services or also self referrals via the patient themselves.
