The staff at St Mary's Surgery


The Practice Manager and assistant Practice Manager, are responsible for the administration of the practice. Any comments, suggestions and feedback, both negative and positive, are welcome, and should be directed to them.
 

The Practice Nurses

A team of practice nurses run the treatment room during surgery hours. Surgeries are run for smears, dressings, removal of sutures, injections, immunisations and minor illness. Appointments should be made at the main reception desk.

The nursing assistants also run surgeries each day. They take bloods to monitor patients on certain medication, in particular rheumatology drugs, and undertake other blood test requests, perform ECGs, ear syringing, lung function tests and take blood pressure readings. They also perform new patient medicals and NHS Health Checks and administer Vitamin B12 injections.

The Reception Staff


As in every doctor’s surgery, the receptionists perform the most difficult task, coping with the needs of the patients and the constraints of an appointment system. They are fully trained and will always endeavour to provide the best service possible to the patients in total confidence. General enquiries by telephone should be made after 10.30am.
 

The Dispensary Staff

The team of dispensary assistants dispense prescriptions for patients living more than one mile from the nearest chemist, and also process repeat prescriptions for patients living within the City of Ely.
 

The Secretarial and Administration Staff

A group of secretaries and administrators completes the practice team, dealing with computer tasks, hospital referrals, pathology results, filing and general administration.
 

General Practice Training


St. Mary’s surgery is a recognised teaching practice for undergraduates. These students sit in on consultations with the doctors. Patients are informed when students are observing consultations and are perfectly entitled to request the student to leave.
