DR JACQUELINE WAKEMAN

MBChB, DRCOG, DFSRH, FRCGP

Dr Wakeman was born in Birmingham in 1962 but grew up in Leeds where she enjoyed archery, competing at senior international level as a teenager. She returned to Birmingham to study medicine, qualifying in 1986. After completing general practice training, she worked in a training practice in South Birmingham, limiting her hours to part time because of the arrival of her two daughters. Late in 1994 Dr Wakeman and her husband Andy, a director of public health, moved to Lichfield with their family and have been happily settled since. She has worked with Langton Medical Group since 1995, becoming a partner in May 2003 following the retirement of Dr Lockwood. In addition, Dr Wakeman has also worked for the local contraception and sexual health service and hence can provide a full range of contraception methods including implants and intrauterine devices. She is a trainer for doctors in family planning methods as well as being a G.P. Trainer. In her spare time, Dr Wakeman enjoys spending time with her family, gardening and swimming, cycling and running to keep fit.

Rosie is a Nurse Partner within the Practice. She qualified in 1989 and specialised in cardiac and intensive care nursing. After qualifying Rosie and her husband Phil moved to Hereford where she worked at the County Hospital on the Cardiac and Intensive Care Unit, and later established a cardiac rehabilitation service for Herefordshire. After the birth of their first child they returned to Lichfield, and have since had a second child. Rosie began working in General Practice as a Practice Nurse in 1992, and is now one of a very small number of Nurse Partners in the country. She continues to have a keen interest in coronary heart disease, and lectures on nursing courses addressing the management and prevention of coronary heart disease. She completed a Master of Science degree in July 2006, in Advanced Nursing Practice, specialising in Primary Care and has also qualified as an independent and supplementary extended nurse prescriber. Rosie is a founder member of the national Nurse Partner group and regularly speaks at conferences on this subject. In her spare time she enjoys being with her family and friends.

Nurse Practitioners

Advanced Nurse Practitioners all have a Masters degree in Advanced Nursing Practice. They undertake many of the tasks traditionally handled by doctors, including diagnosis, writing prescriptions, arranging tests, and referral. They are part of our same day team appointment system. Patients can book appointments with nurses as well as with doctors. They give valued assistance to the doctors by seeing patients and prescribing medication where necessary.
