Our nursing team is responsible for:

Our Nurses are available by appointment. Higher qualifications and training enable them to undertake monitoring of Asthma, Diabetes, High blood pressure and Hormone replacement therapy. They also provide advice on Contraception, Coronary Heart Disease, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease & Warfarin Clinics.
Our nurses have an increasingly important role in managing minor illnesses and will often act as the first point of contact for you. They see patients independently, under the supervision of the Partners and are trained to recognise serious conditions that require referral to your Doctor.
Phone for an appointment for any of these services.

Behind the Scenes Team - Roles
Not surprisingly most patients won’t be familiar with the roles of our ‘behind the scenes’ teams. So, we thought it may be interesting for patients to know a little more and in so doing be helpful in directing queries in future.
Prepare referrals to hospitals and other healthcare providers, tracking, checking and chasing these up. They prepare letters requested by patients for non-NHS services, e.g. medical reports for insurance companies, reports for the DSS/Benefits Agency etc.
They have a heavy workload so please be a patient patient.
