Healthcare Team

Pharmacists

Deborah Hughes – Pharmacy Technician (Woodley)

Pharmacy technicians play an important role, complementing clinical pharmacists, community pharmacists and other members of the PCN multi-disciplinary team. Pharmacy technicians are different to clinical pharmacists as they are not able to prescribe or make clinical decisions, instead working under supervision to ensure effective and efficient use of medicines. Debbie works full time and is based at the Woodley site.

After training with Dr Hussain we welcomed Louise into our Practice. She works cohesively with the clinicians and specialises in minor illnesses.

Mrs Poonam Kumari – Physiotherapist (Thursdays (Woodley)

We have 2 physios working at our sites each week. They are here as first point of contact for patients seeking an appointment for back pain, and other musculoskeletal conditions.

Care Coordinator

Lisa Pickering – Care Coordinator (Monday -Thursday, Woodley)

Lisa’s role is to coordinate key activity including patient access to services, advice and information, and ensuring health and care planning is timely, efficient, and patient-centred.
