We have a very talented and experienced nursing team at the practice, who can deal with a wide range of conditions and procedures.
We have nurses who specialise in asthma and diabetes management, and childhood vaccinations. We also have a healthcare assistant who performs a lot of our tests for patients with chronic lung conditions, as well as new patient checks and blood pressure checks.
Below is a list of examples of conditions that our nurses can treat and manage, and procedures they can perform. This list, however, is not exhaustive, and our reception team will be able to help advise you whether your query might be suitable for a nurse. It is often much quicker to get an appointment to see a nurse, but they are still able to access the support of a GP if they feel you may need further assessment.
