Our practice nurses are friendly and experienced, and work as part of the team with the doctors and other staff. All are trained to advise about leading a healthy lifestyle, certain health problems, foreign travel, and also to perform cervical smears and other medical procedures. Health checks are routinely offered by our nurses to any patients joining the practice.
Certain nurses have extended training in specialist areas such as asthma, heart disease, diabetes and family planning. These nurses are able to offer routine care and advice for patients in these areas under the supervision of the doctors. As well as advice about health for travel abroad they offer a complete range of vaccinations including Yellow Fever.
