Nurses & Healthcare Assistants
Our Practice Nurses offer health checks to new patients and the elderly. They deal with blood tests, cervical smears, wound dressings and some removal of stitches; immunisations including travel vaccines and contraception advice. The nurses organise and run specialist clinics like Asthma, Diabetes, Hypertension and smoking cessation.
