Vicky Cooney

BSc (Hons) RGN Independent/Supplementary Prescriber FPCert

I trained at Poole General Hospital, achieving a distinction award and Nurse of the Year award. After ten years surgical nursing experience at St Mary's Hospital, a change of direction lead to invaluable experience as a nurse in palliative care at Earl Mountbatten Hospice.

I joined St Helens Medical Centre in 2001. I was awarded the Practice Nurse of the Year 2005 by the Royal College of General Practitioners. In 2008 I extended my professional qualifications gaining a BSc(Hons) degree in Clinical Practice from the University of Southampton. In 2010 I was awarded the Independent Nurse Prescriber certificate.

As a nurse prescribing specialist I am qualified in woman's health, family planning, sexual health and minor illnesses. I am also nurse specialist in Coronary Heart Disease and Diabetes.

Kate Bridle

I joined the NHS in 1987 as a Community HCA, a role I enjoyed for 24 years before joining the practice in August 2011. In addition to holding NVQs 2 and 3 in Health Care, I am an experienced phlebotomist and have qualifications in wound care, palliative care and spirometry, and am qualified to administer Vitamin B12, flu and pneumococcal injections. I also register new patients and carry out NHS Health Checks.

I enjoy music festivals and attend the Isle of Wight Festival and Bestival annually.
