You may book an appointment with the Practice Nurses for such services as cervical smears, dressing of wounds, removal of sutures, routine blood pressure checks, dietary advice and smoking cessation advice. As well as giving routine nursing care, the nurses work closely with the doctors in providing Asthma, Diabetes, Chronic Heart Disease and Hypertension care. When making an appointment with the nurse it is helpful if you indicate to the receptionist what the appointment is for, as a longer appointment is given for some procedures. Should you require advice from the Practice Nurses please contact them on the surgery number of 01224 745800. The receptionist will put your call through if possible or will arrange a suitable time for your call to be taken. Our Healthcare Assistant, Mrs Wendy Fox, on referral by a GP, provides phlebotomy, New Patient checks, BP checks and ECG’s.
