Nurse Clinics

The practice nurse clinics can be accessed by the patient through reception. Please state what your appointment is for to ensure that the correct time is allocated for the appointment required.

The nurses run specialist clinics for patients who suffer from asthma, diabetes and heart disease. They also offer screening (including cervical smears), routine vaccinations, travel advice, health promotion and a telephone advice surgery. The practice nurses are also trained to deal with wound/ulcer dressings, blood tests, suture removal and general nursing advice. Ear syringing advice leaflet
