Practice Nurse / Health Care Assistant

We have a team consisting of a practice nurse and a health care assistant who assist the doctors and provide a range of services which include diabetic monitoring, heart disease monitoring, blood pressure checks, asthma checks, cervical smears, weight reduction help, suture removal, wound dressings, blood tests, ear syringing and contraception advice. During October – December, the practice nurse also holds flu vaccination clinics. She can also give advice about minor illnesses and problems you may not be sure whether or not you should see the doctor about.
