Our practice nurses are available to see patients, by appointment, during surgery hours. They can be seen for dressings, immunisations, ear syringing and general advice on health matters. The practice nurses also run clinics for family planning, asthma, diabetes, and other health related problems. In addition, practice nurses may also be seen for well-woman checks, which include cervical smears. To contact a practice nurse or make an appointment, please ring your usual surgery during surgery hours.
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.
