The following members of staff are shared amongst all of the practices within the Primary Care Network – the days they work at Denton Village Surgery are against
Keiron Tanner – Paramedic – THURSDAY
My name is Kieron Tanner and I am a new member of staff working for ParkWood Primary Care Network, a post which will see me working at Denton Surgery for one day each week. Like most paramedics my background was as a traditionally trained paramedic joining the then Two Shires Ambulance Service in 1999. As I greatly enjoyed both the clinical aspects of my job and training and education I sought opportunities to expand my role, I gained BSc (hons) Paramedic Science with Emergency Care Practice in 2008 and then completed MSc Practice Education too. I shaped my carer in two directions, firstly paramedic education and secondly the less urgent side of emergency care seeking to safely and appropriately manage patients in the community. Since 2014 I discontinued my university roles and focussed my work solely in General Practice and in 2018 I qualified as an Independent Prescriber (my cohort were amongst the first to successfully compete this in the UK as it required a law change for professions other than doctors and nurses to gain independent prescribing rights).
Anish Sebastian – Physiotherapist – WEDNESDAY
My name is Anish Sebastian and I qualified as a physiotherapist in 1998 from India and since then I have done a Masters in 2002. I have extensive experience in musculoskeletal field working both in primary and secondary care. I work for the ParkWooD PCN as a first contact Physiotherapist specialising in Musculoskeletal Conditions
I am able to assess and manage all kinds of musculoskeletal issues, referring for imaging when necessary and prescribe any relevant medication.
I am hoping to optimise your care by pointing you to the right directions and resources.
In my free time I like travelling and exploring new cultures.
