Nurses

Our practice nurses are available by appointment and for telephone advice each weekday. They are happy to give advice on family planning and health education.

The district nursing service is a team of nurses providing 24-hour delivery of care to our patients. They care for patients in their own homes, residential and nursing homes and local day care centres. All housebound patients and patients recently discharged from hospital can be referred to this service.

Our community midwives hold antenatal clinics and parent craft classes. They attend to mothers and babies in their own homes for up to four weeks after delivery.

Healthcare Assistants

Healthcare assistants support practice nurses with their daily work and carry out tasks such as phlebotomy (drawing blood), blood pressure measurement and new patient checks. They may act as a chaperone when a patient or doctor requests one.
