Our practice nurses have a wide variety of skills. Nurse Practitioners are able to diagnose, advise, prescribe and refer in a similar way to doctors and hold routine clinics for this purpose.
Practice nurses can be seen for preventative care and for monitoring and managing long term conditions, such as diabetes and asthma. You can book to see a nurse for any of the following:
- Contraception (full range of services available)
- Routine adult immunisation
- Travel immunisation and advice
- Long-term condition monitoring and management
- Children’s vaccinations
- Cervical smears
- Leg ulcer and wound care
Healthcare Assistants also have an active role in preventative care with monitoring long-term conditions, new patient and NHS Healthchecks, blood pressure checks, weight management/dietary advice, smoking advice and some vaccinations.
We also work very closely with our community teams.
