The Nursing Team
The Nursing Team at Monkseaton consists of
Leander Bain Practice Nurse
Angela Auld Health Care Assistant
Lesley Arkley Health Care Assistant
Between them, the Nursing Team can help with almost anything.
In other words, Want a Doctor? Think Nurse.
Our Practice Nurse has a great deal of experience and expertise, looking after our patients.
The Doctors often pass their patients over to our team after diagnosis of things like hypertension for ongoing care, medication management, and lifestyle advice. If you suddenly develop a high blood pressure you will find yourself under her management and being put through your paces.
Angela Auld and Lesley Arkley are Health Care Assistants and are not qualified nurses. They are the blood takers in the practice and look after most of our patients requiring dressings. They take routine blood pressures, take part in Health checks and annual reviews. They also assist the GPs and the other members of the nursing team.
