Lead Nurse

Sian Davies qualified as a registered nurse from Southampton University in 2007.  She worked closely with Wistaria and Milford Surgeries as a district nurse, before joining the practice nursing team in 2014, based at Wistaria Surgery.  She then took on the role as lead nurse at Milford Medical Centre in November 2015.  From January 2018 Sian has become lead nurse for both sites.


Sian has an interest in tissue viability and you may see her when attending your cardiac and respiratory reviews or bringing your babies in for their routine immunisations. Sian lives in Milford and is kept busy outside of work by her three young boys.

Healthcare Assistants

Healthcare assistants support practice nurses with their daily work and carry out tasks such as New patient checks, NHS Healthchecks and blood pressure measurement. They may act as a chaperone when a patient or doctor requests one.
