Our practice nurses are friendly and experienced, and work as part of the team with the doctors and other staff. All are trained to advise about leading a healthy lifestyle, certain health problems, foreign travel, and also to perform cervical smears and other medical procedures. Health checks are routinely offered by our nurses to any patients joining the practice.
Certain nurses have extended training in specialist areas such as asthma, heart disease, diabetes and family planning. These nurses are able to offer routine care and advice for patients in these areas under the supervision of the doctors. As well as advice about health for travel abroad they offer a complete range of vaccinations including Yellow Fever.
Our healthcare assistants are fully trained to take bloods, and carry out other health checks to support the Practice Nurses and GPs.
You can make an appointment to see a member of the nursing team by contacting the surgery. You will be asked what type of appointment you require to enable the appropriate amount of time to be booked.
