Practice nurses are qualified and registered nurses. They can help with health issues such as family planning, healthy living advice, blood pressure checks and dressings. The practice nurses run clinics for long-term health conditions such as asthma or diabetes, minor ailment clinics and carry out cervical smears.
The role of a care coordinator is to provide support to individuals and their families who need help, both emotionally and practically, so they can live an independent life. They are an essential part of the nursing team and can see families both within the surgery setting or in the comfort of your own home.
