Practice Nurse Services

doctor_examining_childThe nurses employed by the practice provide a wide range of caring and preventative services. They run clinics for asthma, diabetes, hypertension, vascular disease (encompassing Ischaemic Heart Disease and Stroke), well woman clinics, family planning, immunisations and minor surgery. As well as the clinics our practice nurses provide a wide variety of services including dressings, injections, and travel advice/immunisations. An appointment system is in operation.

 

Nurse Practitioner Service

Nurse Practitioners see patients with many of the less serious illnesses traditionally dealt with by GPs, such as coughs, colds, sore throats, urine infections and some simple, uncomplicated skin complaints. Our previous Nurse Practitioner, Rachel Hall, also saw patients in our Asthma, COPD, Diabetes and Warfarin initiation clinics. She also undertook Care Home Reviews. However, in May 2016, Rachel returned to work in the locality where she was brought up. Her depature means that we currently have no Nurse Practitioner. On a positive note, two of our nurses will undertake training for this role, but it will take several months for them to be able to undertake the full spectrum of NP consultations (May 2016).

 

Health Care Assistants

Healthcare Assistants assist with many duties traditionally performed by the practice nurses e.g. blood pressure checks, ECGs, chaperoning and in-house INR checks for those suitable patients. They also perform new patient medicals.
