All our practice nurses are registered general nurses. They can help with health issues such as family planning, healthy living advice, blood pressure checks, ECG monitoring, ear care 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. The practice nurses undertake various immunisations including childhood, travel, influenza and tetanus.
If you are unsure whether you will need to see a nurse or doctor, ask a receptionist who will make the appropriate appointment for you.
Specialised areas include diabetes.

Healthcare assistants support practice nurses with their daily work and carry out tasks such as phlebotomy (drawing blood), blood pressure measurement, ECG monitoring, influenza immunisations and new patient checks. They may act as a chaperone when a patient or doctor requests one.
