Nurses

Practice nurses are qualified and registered nurses. They can help with health issues such as family planning, healthy living advice, blood pressure checks and dressings. The practice nurses run clinics for long-term health conditions such as asthma or diabetes, minor ailment clinics and carry out cervical smears.

Nurse Practitioner

We now have a Nurse Practitioner, who works supporting the Doctors with Home visits, chronic disease management and test results. If you ring for a Home visit you will usually be telephoned by the Nurse who will ask more details than the receptionist has. The Doctors are aware of all visits and if appropriate you will be visited by the Nurse rather than the Doctor.

Healthcare Assistants

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