Nursing Team

Annette Farrow – Practice Nurse

I qualified as an RGN in North London in 1988 and have worked at both Addenbrookes & Hinchingbrooke Hospitals. I have been employed as a Practice Nurse since 2009 and have gained Diplomas in Asthma, Diabetes & Minor Injury.

I moved to Swavesey in 1989 , and now live in St Ives. I have three grown-up children and have recently become a nanny for the first time. I was a patient at Swavesey Surgery many years ago and feel like I have come home!

I feel very blessed to work with such a small, friendly team and how lucky our patients are.

Jackie Barnard – Healthcare Assistant

I have been a phlebotomist for many years and enjoy working within NHS healthcare.   I also spend time working with school children encouraging them to take part in gardening which I thoroughly enjoy

Other Team Members

Pekka Tuutti – Social Prescriber

A social prescriber aims to provide support for a wide range of issues which can affect wellbeing.  Many health conditions can be helped by changes to lifestyle.  I am able to spend time getting to know patients and support them to connect with services in the community which are most suited to their wellbeing.    I will be working closely with community groups, social services, local charities so I am aware of all that is on offer.

Ben Bailey – First Contact Practitioner

Ben’s role is to see patients that have new problems relating to neck, back, bones, muscles, or joints pain.  He is trained to assess and manage musculoskeletal conditions, although he is referred to as a physio and can provide a tailored exercise programme for your condition he does not usually carry out physiotherapy at your appointment.  He will assess the most appropriate pathway for your care; ordering pathology (blood) tests and referring you to the hospital for further investigations when required.

Simon Swallow –  Clinical Pharmacist

Hello to the patients of Swavesey surgery. My name is Simon Swallow and I have joined the practice as a Clinical Pharmacist. A little about me first, I live in Godmanchester and have done most of adult life. I have two grown up sons (23 and 19), both of which I am very proud of and are now pursuing their own lives in the careers they have chosen. I have been a pharmacist since 1993 and have had a very varied career working for Boots and more recently LloydsPharmacy. I have worked as a pharmacist most of the time but also have held senior management roles, been part of a training team and more recently taught in further education- which I will be continuing when not in my clinical pharmacist role.

You may be speaking to me/seeing me at some point when you have contact with the surgery, I look forward to meeting you as my time in the surgery progresses. I hope to bring some of my experience and knowledge to help the surgery to deliver the best care possible to its patients, although I do have a steep learning curve to climb too.

I will be working very closely with Dr Jain and Dr Mian using my expert knowledge in medication to improve value and outcomes from medicines, consult with, and treat patients directly.

This includes providing extra help to manage long-term conditions, advice for those on multiple medicines and better access to health checks.

I am a firm believer in patient-centred care and looking forward to talking to you all to make a difference in your quality of life.
