Nursing Team

Specialist Nurses

Michelle Shawarby (F)

Expansion of our clinical team – Primary Care Matron

We employ a Practice Matron to support and complement our GP team. Her name is Michelle and will already be well known to a number of our patients due to her former role as a Community Matron within the community nursing team. Michelle forms part of our Duty Team, and will be looking after our housebound and care home patients and will provide home visits when appropriate.

Michelle is a very highly skilled clinician with many years of experience. She is able to prescribe and refer in the same way as a GP. Michelle will have the time and expertise to provide a more holistic and proactive service to patients and will enable a more streamlined patient experience.
