Bath Independent Practices Primary Care Network
Batheaston Medical Centre works closely alongside the other Practices who are members of the BIP PCN, Fairfield Park Health Centre and Widcombe Surgery. Together we employ staff who work for all three practices:
Pharmacists – Katy Seager, Antigoni Gerantzi and Dafni Panopoulou
Our Clinical Pharmacists help the doctors at the surgery with prescribing queries, carry out medication reviews and address patient safety issues. They also undertake annual reviews for people with Hypertension, Cardiovascular disease (CVD) and Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) with the advanced training to prescribe new medications as required.
Pharmacy Technicians – Lisa Jones and Saira Searle
Our Pharmacy Technicians supports the Clinical Pharmacist with administering medication queries and changes.
PCN Mental Health Practitioner – Katie Oliver
Katie offers consultations to patients who are suffering with anxiety, depression or who are struggling with any mild form of mental illness.
PCN Social Prescriber – Rachel Jarai
Rachel offers support to patients who have social needs such as housing issues, financial problems, loneliness or isolation. She is able to support patients and signpost them to the help that need.
PCN First Contact Physiotherapist – Jack Dawkins
Patients are able to see Jack without the need to be referred by a GP. As well as saving GP appointment time, this enables the patient to access a physiotherapist much earlier than if they had booked with a GP in the first instance.
PCN Paramedics – Jason Beazer and Jim Burn
Jason and Jim visit our patients who are acutely ill and unable to come to the surgery. They work closely with our GPs and support them to assess the patients and decide whether they need urgent medication or hospital admission. Jason and Jim also visit our chronic housebound patients, give seasonal vaccinations, as well as help with long term conditioning monitoring.
