Our practice nurses offer a wide range of services including advice and health care for asthma, contraception, diabetes and hypertension. They also remove stitches, change surgical dressings, give injections, advise on travel immunisation, administer wound management, deal with some minor injuries and syringe ears. They vaccinate babies and children and advise on many aspects of your health. The nurses are supported by a small team of healthcare assistants and phlebotomists.
Our practice nurses are highly skilled and experienced and have specialised in many aspects of care. Please let the receptionist know what you would like to see the nurse about, so that she can make sure that you get an appointment with the appropriate nurse and for the appropriate length of time. Appointments with the nurses can be arranged by telephoning us on 01367 242388.
