Our Practice Nurses work almost exclusively in the Health Centre. They do most of the planned regular checks on patients with chronic conditions and they do many of the investigations requested by the Doctors. In addition they offer a full family planning advice service and take most of the cervical smears. They also undertake a range of practical procedures, such as dressings and ear syringing.

The community nurses attached to the practice are responsible for visiting and treating patients in their own homes.
Many of those they visit are elderly and have long term problems from degenerative diseases or are terminally ill. Others are confined for only short periods of time during an acute illness or after an operation.
