Practice NursesNurse_BP

 

In a number of cases it might be worth considering an appointment with a practice nurse rather than a doctor. Practice nurses are qualified to deal with many ailments and you may be seen more quickly. Our practice nurses hold surgeries every weekday morning and afternoon. They can help with immunisations, travel advice, dressings, chronic diseases, catheter care and the treatment of warts and verrucas etc.

Healthcare Assistants

Our HCAs are trained to a high standard and able to do blood tests, ear syringing, removal of sutures and clips, ECGs, dopplers, spirometry and smoking cessation.

 

To make an appointment with one of our practice nurses or healthcare assistants, please call 01271 314236 between 08:30 & 13:00 or 14:00 & 17:00.  

Telephone Advice

 

If you feel the nurse can help you with advice over the telephone please speak with the receptionist who will ask for your contact number and take a brief message. The nurse will return your call at a convenient time.

 

Cancellations

 

If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible on (01271) 329004 to allow us to give the slot to someone else.

Please ring for results after 11:30, as results are not received at the Medical Centre until later in the morning.
