Practice Nursing Team

Our Practice Nurses are specially trained to run routine clinics for certain conditions, such as diabetes and heart disease. (Each of our Nurses specialises in a different area, so you need to book ahead with the most appropriate person).

They also provide service and advice on issues such as health promotion, contraception, travel, vaccination and cervical cytology (smears).

Mrs Anna Jenkinson

When I was young all I wanted to do was to be a nurse.  On leaving Malaysia, I trained at the old ‘Chesterfield Royal’, to become a Registered nurse.  Subsequently then worked in intensive care for a period, followed by A & E.  After this, I moved to Scotland to work on a medical unit for 5 years.  Then Nottingham to work on a surgical unit for 5 years.  Have always been interested in general practice and community health and I commenced work as one of the first Practice Nurse’s in post in 1986 in the Chesterfield area.  This post highlighted my need for further in depth understanding of the social needs of people and would be an advantage in my work.  Therefore, I embarked on an Open University Degree course gaining a BA Honours in Health and Social Care whist working full time.  The course enabled me to choose the subjects that are relevant to my practice work, e.g. working with young people, promoting health skills perspective and practice, making a tremendous difference to my working ethics.  My main specialist clinical interests are; Diabetes triggered by family experience of diabetes management and understanding Health Promotion on reflecting on how my health needs were met in country of origin. 

Mrs Jackie Taylor

I have had a varied nursing career working in medicine, anaesthetic nursing, working at a small community hospital in the Scottish highlands where you dealt with whatever came your way, Marie Curie, Ambulance escort, Post anaesthetic care and then finally Practice nursing.

I also managed to squeeze in 2 years working in an Outdoor pursuits centre where I organised the housekeeping and catering.

My role as a practice nurse is varied but my special interest is asthma.

If you can catch me when I am off duty , I am usually at the gym, on the back of my husbands motorbike, or organising the feeding of homeless or destitute folk on Church on the bus in Chesterfield.

Healthcare Assistants

Healthcare assistants support practice nurses with their daily work and carry out tasks such as phlebotomy (drawing blood), blood pressure measurement and new patient checks. They may act as a chaperone when a patient or doctor requests one.
