Our practice nurses are available by appointment Monday to Friday. They are responsible for promoting and maintaining good health. They can advise on travel and child immunisations, diet, smoking cessation, alcohol control and carry out general health checks and smears. They see patients with asthma, COPD, diabetes and well woman checks (for patients on contraception), HRT, general health checks, smears and IUD checks. They also monitor hypertension (high blood pressure) and lipids (cholesterol).
