14/04/22 Treatment Room Clinics

Next week we welcome a new Healthcare Assistant! So, we thought what better time to explain a bit more about the role of a HCA and the value they bring to the team.

At Chapelford our HCA is responsible for providing a variety of key services onsite from our treatment room. These services include:

- Taking blood
- ECGs
- Carrying out vital checks, like blood pressure
- Managing wounds and changing dressings
- Ear syringing
- Providing general healthcare advice

The HCA works closely with the clinical staff to ensure patients are supported and fully cared for.

At the practice we have treatment room clinics running 5 days a week. If you require any of the services listed above please call and our reception team will be happy to help. We advise calling after 10am for routine appointments.
