Violence or Abuse against Practice Staff

Violence against or abuse of practice staff is totally unacceptable.  Patients who are verbally abusive will receive a letter outlining the unacceptable nature of their behaviour and warned as to their future conduct.  If this continues then they will be removed from the practice list.  Any form of physical violence or intimidation will not be tolerated.  Such behaviour will result in instant removal from the list.

Nurses

Ms Megan Walker (f)

My Name is Megan. I am the lead practice nurse here at Foxhayes. I qualified with a degree with honours at UWE in 2014, Adult nursing. 

I first worked in oncology as a registered nurse  at the R D and E. I then went on to work for 111 as a clinician. 

I started working in a practice in 2018. Where I learnt all my skills to be a practice nurse. I then went into the role of the lead practice nurse. 

I have a real interest in helping patients with long term conditions and helping them cope the best they can. 

I specialise in diabetes and respiratory diseases such as COPD and asthma. I also have lots of experience in chronic disease management, health promotion, phlebotomy, smears, wound care, immunisations for children, adults and for travel and mental health conditions. 

I have a real passion for health and well-being having gone through a big change in my life recently losing 7 stone in weight. 

My own interests are my family and friends but if I am not working you will usually find me at the beach. 

Looking forward to meeting you all
