Nurse Practitioner Lead
The nurse practitioners are happy to see patients with a wide variety of problems including minor illness, minor injury and medication reviews plus most general health queries you may have. Nurse Practitioners are able to prescribe and refer onwards as required.
Nurse Lead & Prescriber
Nurse Prescribers are experienced Practice Nurses who have taken extra qualifications to be able to prescribe.
You may see the nurse for consultation, without seeing the doctor first.
Nurses are responsible for vaccinations, annual reviews, contraception and sexual health advice, cervical screening, wound management and applying complex dressings.
They do not deal with any eye problems or skin rashes, minor illness or acute presentations.
Healthcare Assistants are responsible for blood pressure checks, annual reviews, new patient/NHS health checks, ECGs, giving dietary advice, applying minor wound dressings and syringing ears.
Phlebotomists take blood and do not carry out any other nursing tasks. Please request an appointment with them, if you need a regular blood test or one that the clinician has agreed.
