|Mrs Lacey Walls (f)|
She is trained in Phlebotomy, Healthchecks, Dressings, Ear Washouts, Spirometry and Audiology. Her main role is a Care Co-Ordinator working alongside the GP's and nurses to identify unmet needs and to assist patients in obtaining adequate support from health, social and voluntary sectors.
She oversee's the Frailty list patients and tries to keep a closer eye on those more vulnerable on our lists.
She also receives a lot of referrals from GP's and nurses about patients and their relatives that could use extra help either in their own home, whether they live with relatives, are considering moving in to more sheltered accomodation or those needing respite care, even those with social needs like shopping and socialising.
She makes contact with patients recently discharged from hospital to make sure they have adequate care in place should they need it, as well as speaking to patients and putting care in place to avoid hospital admissions.
