Our Nurse Practitioners contribute to both the Doctor and Nurse teams at the practice. They can assess acute medical problems and deal with any minor illnesses including the treatment of children. They also review patients with long term conditions especially those with multiple conditions or complex problems. They carry out necessary home visits.

Healthcare assistants support practice nurses with their daily work and carry out tasks such as phlebotomy (drawing blood), blood pressure measurement, ECGs, flu vaccinations, assisting in LCT (long term condition) and anti-coagulation clinics, minor surgery and new patient checks. They may act as a chaperone when a patient or doctor requests one.
