Nurses

Nurse Colette Cheshire-Beeson - Practice Nurse (f)

I qualified as a nurse in 1987 at West Hertfordshire School of Nursing and spent my first 4 years working in 3 different Accident and Emergency departments in the area. After getting married to my husband who is a Paramedic we both moved back to my home town of Manchester. I was employed at the Accident and Emergency department at Bolton Royal Infirmary but then sought promotion to Sister at the Accident and Emergency department at North Manchester General Hospital.

In 2004 and after 20 years of Accident and Emergency Nursing I wanted a career change. I wanted a job where every day was different, had variety of illness/problems, saw people from all walks of life and from the young to the old. My first post as a Practice Nurse was in Rochdale and in 2009 moved to a brand new surgery in Radcliffe which is now a busy established surgery.

I enjoy the variety of the post and have an interest in diabetes and heart disease and hold a certificate and diploma in both fields. However I am as equally keen on providing education and advice in the prevention and management of chronic diseases and in other health subjects.

In my spare time I enjoy family life with my husband and boys. You may see me cycling in the area and 'trying' to play tennis at local parks. I also like badminton and use my swimming strengths to fundraise for various charities.

Healthcare Assistants

Miss Gemma Roberts - Healthcare Assistant (f)

I joined the practice almost a year ago and have worked within healthcare for around 4 years, initially in health records at Fairfield Hospital and then as a Trainee Health Care Assistant on the Maternity ward at North Manchester General Hospital. I have recently completed training to become a Health Care Assistant and offer appointments for blood tests and blood pressure checks along with our Practice Nurse.  I am also a member of our support team where the majority of my time is devoted and the Carer's Advocate for the practice where i am responsible for increased awareness of carer's and the support that they require.  I feel that our patients deserve a friendly and approachable support team and we make every effort to ensure our patients are helped in any way possible and the smooth running of the practice is upheld. Outside of work i am kept busy trying to keep up with my two children. In my spare time i enjoy socializing with friends, relaxing with family and exercising, when i get the chance!

I have recently won the Royal College Of General Practitioners North West Practice Receptionist Of The Year Award 2011 for the most outstanding contribution to Primary Care service provision or development by a Practice Receptionist in the preceding year.  A recognition which i am very proud of.  For more information on this award, click here.
