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.
Annmarie and Niki oversee baby immunisations, heart disease prevention, asthma/COPD, diabetes, sexual health clinics and cervical cytology clinics.
Please note that women aged 25-49 years should have a smear test every 3 years and women aged 49-64 every 5 years.
We are also pleased to announce that we have appointed a new Practice Nurse, Emma, who will be joining us in July 2018 (more details to be confirmed shortly).
