Welcome Back Nurse Joylogo

Portcullis Surgery is pleased to announce that Nurse Joy Godding is returning to our Practice in September as an Advanced Nurse Practioner. Nurse Joy worked in our practice from 2005 until last year and was well liked by both staff and patients. She has been working in a more advanced role in a large, busy practice in Hereford for the last year and we are delighted to have her back in the practice… in her new role.

Joy will be working 4 days a week, Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. She is now qualified to see patients with urgent problems such as: abdominal pain, chesty coughs, shortness of breath etc as well as the usual minor illnesses, sore throats, urine infections etc. Nurse Joy is also a qualified diabetic specialist nurse and has an interest in chronic disease.

Finally she will also be carrying out some late surgery sessions on Monday evenings, early surgeries on Friday mornings with the partners as well as Saturday sessions with Dr Beanland in order to accommodate the needs of working patients better.
