The Practice employs locum doctors on a sessional basis if required when one or more of the above doctors are absent.
Advanced Nurse Practitioners are qualified to diagnose and manage health problems, recommend treatments and prescribe medications. They can provide you with information and advice and, if necessary, refer you to a Doctor or other health care professional. They may be able to help you with such conditions as coughs and colds, “flu-like” illness, sore throats, “tummy bugs”, urinary tract infections, vaginal discharge, head lice, scabies, chest infections, skin conditions, sore eyes, sore ears and other minor illness.
The Practice Nursing Team provides advice on all aspects of health and illness, with a focus on preventative health care. Appointments may be made to see members of the Team for Asthma, Diabetes, Family Planning advice, Cervical Smears, New Patient Registration, Travel advice, Smoking Cessation, blood pressure monitoring, and routine blood tests.
Members of the Practice Nursing Team also provide contraception services.
The Health Care Assistants are involved with sample testing, blood pressure monitoring and blood testing. They also manage warfarin treatment using the coaguchek system.
