The practice nurses are available by appointment only, Monday – Friday. The nurses have many skilled duties and our receptionists can advise you whether to make an appointment with the nurse or doctor with regards to these aspects of your care.
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.
Our reception staff will assist you in making urgent and routine appointments to see your doctor or nurse, undertake repeat prescription requests, generally support the doctors in the day-to-day operation of the practice and offer help and assistance at all times.
