Led by our Nurse Manager we have a team of Health Care Assistants and Practice Nurses who carry out routine tests as well as provide care in specific areas.
Health Care Assistants carry out various tasks including taking blood samples, routine blood pressure monitoring, recording ECGs and carrying out spirometry tests.
Our Nurses have further training in specific areas. These include asthma, diabetes, family planning, cervical smear, smoking cessation, travel advice and vaccinations,and complex wound management. If you require care in one of these areas, we can arrange an appointment for you with the appropriately qualified nurse.
The senior Practice Nurses can assess acute minor illness, for example, respiratory tract infections, rashes and earache. They have received special training for this work and there is always a doctor available if needed.
