Nurses or health care assistants are available in the treatment room during all surgeries. At most other times when the surgery is open, a nurse is available to answer telephone queries and to assess requests for urgent visits. Appointments may be made with the nurses for blood pressure checks, conjunctivitis, cystitis, dietary advice, dressings, ear syringing, vaccinations, travel immunisations, removal of sutures, and advice.
Senior nurses also manage several of our specialist clinics for diabetes, coronary heart disease, hypertension, INR(warfarin) monitoring, asthma and contraception.
