Our Practice Nurses and Nurse Practitioners are highly qualified and fully registered nurses. Nurse Practitioners deal with a range of medical problems and minor illness, while both they and the nurses can help with health issues such as family planning, healthy living advice, blood pressure checks and dressings. The practice nurse Team also run clinics for long-term health conditions in conjunction with the Doctors and Health Care Assistants, such as asthma or diabetes, minor ailment clinics and carry out cervical smears. They are available for advice between 09:00 - 12:00 and 13:00 - 18:00.
Secretaries are the communication link between the GPs and other health services and hospitals. Patients who have already been referred for a hospital appointment will usually get a letter direct from the hospital with details of the appointment. If necessary the patient may make further enquiries from the hospital department themselves, but our secretaries will be happy to help if there are problems.
