Practice Nurses are fully trained in a wide range of skills including immunisations, health promotion, contraception and management of long-term conditions e.g. advise on diet and lifestyle choices, coronary heart disease, hypertension, asthma, diabetes, smoking cessation and obesity. Practice Nurses can extend their skills at Diploma Level and see many patients who previously would have seen the Doctor.
The Nursing Team run various Nurse-led clinics for diabetes, asthma, coronary heart disease and COPD as well as providing general nursing services, dressings, removal of sutures and blood tests.
The practice policy is to encourage a healthy lifestyle, and our nurses run many of the screening programmes, which can help to prevent ill health. If you are invited to attend for such tests, please try to attend, as this can prevent complications in later life. If you want to speak to a practice nurse ring 01779 841208 and the receptionist will be glad to put you through or arrange a suitable time for you to call back.
