Our Nurse Practitioner has advanced qualifications and clinical training, she provides healthcare in a similar way to the GP’s. Her role is different from that of a Practice Nurse because she shares the load of the GP’s and provides services which are complementary to that of the doctors and as an alternative choice for patients. A Nurse Practitioner is able to diagnose, treat and prescribe medication for various common health problems. She can also provide other services such as Health Promotion/Primary Prevention of Heart Disease/Stroke/ Family Planning/Cervical Smears/Womens Health. Our Nurse Practitioner is also a trained Smoking Cessation Advisor. Appointments are available daily.
The Practice Nurse is qualified to monitor Diabetes , Hypertension , Heart Disease, Asthma, Sexual Health and Contraceptive Services in conjunction with the doctors. She also carries out Cervical Smears, ChildhoodImmunisations, Travel Vaccinations and is available to give health/lifestyle advice. Our Practice Nurse is also a trained Smoking Cessation Advisor. Appointments are available daily.
We run a range of clinics. For an appointment or further details please call our surgery on 01706 641409.
Baby Immunisation clinic: Friday 10:00-12:00
Minor surgery clinic: Thursday 09:00 - 11:30 (3rd of month after consultation with the GP)
APPOINTMENTS CAN ALSO BE BOOKED THROUGHOUT THE WEEK WITH THE NURSES FOR THE FOLLOWING CONDITIONS
The Healthcare Assistant works under the supervision of the nurses. She can take blood, check blood pressure, test urine and carry out new patient medicals.
If a GP or another member of our health care team believes you need hospital treatment or specialist care elsewhere, they will ask you where and when you would like to go. They can then, in most cases, book your appointment electronically whilst you wait.
If you would prefer to have some time to think before deciding where and when you have treatment, you will be offered the option of calling the practice later and we will be able to book your appointment then.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
