Sally Styles

Sally has been our Practice Pharamcy advisor for a number of years and has recently joined us to work alongside the GPs helping with complex Medication reviews for patients with many diseases.  She provides education and training to the nurses and dispensers and will in future help patients to better understand their medication

Community Midwives

The midwife holds antenatal clinics by appointment with reception. You do not need to see a doctor before seeing the midwife. To contact the midwife just ring reception. Along with the health visitor, the midwife runs a weekly Breast Feeding Support Group in the area.

Community Nurses

As part of the Copeland Community Services team the community nurses at Seascale work alongside the doctors, health visitor, social workers, practice nurse and Macmillan nurses. Some of our community nurses also work in the practice treatment room. The community nurses provide a nursing service for the housebound patient. Whilst we recognise the need for housebound patients to leave the home occasionally, please try to be available for their visits or inform them if you plan to be out. If a patient is able to be transported to the surgery this will help free up more time for the community nurses to visit housebound patients who are unable to visit the practice. During normal opening hours the community nurses can be contacted through reception. A 24-hour community nurse service is not yet available but there is an extended evening service operating between 5.00pm and midnight via Cumbria Health on Call (CHOC).  To contact them in the evening, weekends or bank holidays telephone 111 and when connected to CHOC ask for the community nurse. You can also contact CHOC directly on 03000 247 247.

Health Visitors

The health visitor is concerned with the promotion of health and prevention of ill health by the provision of education, advice and support. They are particularly concerned with the health and well-being of babies and children up to 5 years old. They run baby clinics. Please ask reception for the times of the clinics and when the health visitor is available at either surgery.

Attached Staff

Our doctors may refer you to other health care professionals for treatment in the surgery or elsewhere in Copeland, e.g. speech and language therapy, dietician, physiotherapy, podiatry, mental health counseling and drug/alcohol counseling. You can now self refer to podiatry and physiotherapy, please contact reception for information.
