Having worked in nursing for many years, Connie Porter has seen it all and can therefore be replied on to keep a cool, calm head, no matter what the medical situation. Connie started out in the world of nursing as a Clinical Support Worker before going on to study at Napier University. Since earning her degree, she has worked in a variety of wards including Orthopaedics, General Surgery, the Acute Receiving Unit and the Emergency Department.
Armed with this valuable experience, Connie joined YourGP as a Practice Nurse and now oversees a wide range of services such as medical examinations, blood tests, sexual health screenings and vaccinations. No two days are ever the same for Connie, and that’s exactly how she likes it! Of course, with such a busy day-job, Connie understands the need to wind down in her spare time, so when she’s not being kept on her toes at the clinic, she’s out stretching her legs with her four ‘fur friends’ in the Scottish Borders.
“When Lyn booked me with Dr McFarlane and said ‘what he doesn’t know about sexual health isn’t worth knowing’ she was right. Thorough assessment, quick test and immediate treatment all in a relaxed, professional manner – Excellent!”View more testimonials
