Nurse Practitioners

Our Nurse Practitioner plays a key role in reviewing a range of ailments, such as chest infections, ear infections, abdominal pain and certain rashes. She is able to examine you, request any necessary tests and prescribe any treatment if needed. You may be directed to seeing her if you ring for a "same day" appointment, although she does have access to discuss your care with a GP if needed.

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.

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.
