Our Practice Nurses see patients by appointment only. They all undertake general treatment room duties, are involved in national screening programmes (Cervical Smears) as well as chronic disease management with routine hypertensive and chronic kidney disease reviews.
They can offer advice on numerous health topics including asthma, COPD, diabetes and heart disease prevention.
It is possible to request a telephone call from the practice nurse, depending on when the request comes in you will be contacted either the same day or the following day.
All our Registered Nurses are experienced and most have been with us for many years. They all run routine Practice Nurse Surgeries and they have all undertaken extended training and specialise in certain areas.
