Nurse Appoinments

When should I see a nurse?


Nurses based at our practice treat patients for a wide range of common conditions (e.g. removing stitches, travel vaccinations, immunisations and so on).  Our practice nurses are also specially trained to run routine clinics for certain conditions, such as diabetes and heart disease. (Each of our nurses specialises in a different area, so you need to book ahead with the most appropriate person). Our reception staff will be able to advise whether a nurse appointment is appropriate.


Why see a nurse practitioner or nurse instead of a doctor?


Ms A Mill our First Contact Practitioner is specifically trained to deal with urgent cases, and is an indepent prescriber. Our nurses have been trained to undertake healthcare monitoring for patients with long-term conditions. If patients see our nurses for routine healthcare needs or for straightforward medical help it means that our doctors have more time to see patients with more complex healthcare needs. The reception staff can generally advise whether an early appointment with the nurse will be satisfactory for your particular health problem.
