Nurses

Practice Nurses are registered nurses who have had extra training to meet the needs of most health issues in primary care. This includes providing a triage service for urgent appointments, assessing and treating minor illnesses, managing of chronic diseases such as Asthma, Diabetes and COPD, taking smears, wound care, travel advice, vaccinations and healthy lifestyle advice.

Healthcare Assistants

Our Healthcare Assistants support practice nurses with their daily work and carry out tasks such as ECGs, blood pressure, certain vaccinations (e.g. B12s and flus), ear syringing (following nurse assessment) and compression bandaging (following nurse assessment). They are also qualified to carry out NHS Health Checks, and to give stop smoking advice and guidance.  They may act as a chaperone when a patient or doctor requests one.

Phlebotomists

---Phlebotomist information---

Our phlebotomist focuses on taking blood samples, which underpin so much of diagnosis and subsequent treatment.  Blood samples have to be taken in the morning so that they can be collected in the afternoons and sent off to the lab for analysis.
