Our practice nurses run clinics daily. They have a key role in helping patients manage chronic diseases such as asthma, COPD, diabetes and hypertension.
Appointments can also be made for such things as wound care, ear care, immunisations, help with lifestyle changes such as stopping smoking or losing weight, contraception and cervical smears.
Each nurse specialises in particular areas and different length appointments are needed for different things. The receptionist will guide you when you book a nurse appointment.
