Mental Health Nurse
Hi! My name is Jo and I am the Mental Health Nurse for the PCN4+ area. I have worked for the NHS for around 8 years. We started this service 12 months ago and so far we’ve helped many local people improve their lives.My job is to help people recover from mental health problems which can include low mood, anxiety, hallucinations and stress. From a 1 hour assessment, I am able to give my patients tailor made advice to help them “in the now” I also signpost onto other organisations where necessary, for example, some people may need some sort of therapy or counselling. Together, we can identify what your needs are and how to address them. Lots of people are struggling currently due to a variety of reasons. If you’re struggling to move forward in life due to poor mental health and would like support, please get in touch.
Damien Maloy (M)
Advanced Clinical Practioner
Hi, I am a new member of the practice team and part of the clinical team here at Tong Medical Practice. I worked as a paramedic in West Yorkshire before becoming an Advanced Clinical Practioner over 10 years ago and I have been working within the Primary Care Network since then. I look forward to seeing you at some point in the future, within the practice. Oh, and say hi if you see me around the practice.
First Contact Physiotherapist
My name is Mohammad and I have been working for the past 8 months as a First Contact Physiotherapist at Tong Medical Practice.My background is from a variety of departments, including having worked in MSK, Respiratory, Neurological, Vascular, Orthopaedics, Community and Private Practice.
The role of a FCP in primary care is to assess, diagnose and provide the most suitable management for a patient who has not seen any other practitioner. Onward referrals to further specialists is something that is carried out if a problem is out of the scope of a FCP. Seeing an FCP helps reduce waiting times, as any musculoskeletal problems including bones, joints, ligaments, tendons and muscles, can be diagnosed by an FCP and therefore does not require the additional appointment with a GP.
So remember, next time you have an injury, fall, strain or sprain-come and see one of our friendly FCPs! Available at Tong Medical Practice on Thursdays and Fridays every week.
Specialist Support for reducing Benzodiaazepine and Opiod medications
Hello, I’m Jen and I am based at Tong Medical Practice all day every Wednesday to offer one to one support in reducing some prescribed medications, these include:
Benzodiazepines – some common examples are Diazepam,Nitrazepam and Temazepam
Opioids – some common examples areTramodol, Codeine and Oxycodone
Often these medications have been prescribed for long periods of time and can cause many unwanted side effects.You may have noticed that they have become less effective over time.
I can work with you on an individualised plan to support you to make reductions at a pace guided by you
If you feel that you may benefit from this support, please talk to your GP about a referral.
Lal Shah (M)
Our practice pharmacist supports our clinical team with issues regarding medication. At times our patients may be asked to discuss changes in their medication with our pharmacist at the request of a GP. This is to ensure patients are fully aware of the actions and benefits of the medication they are being asked to take. This may also occur if a consultant has requested a change to patient medication.
You can request a telephone call back from Lal to discuss any prescription queries. Please contact the surgery to arrange a call back.
