The Practice is fortunate in having two primary care trained nursing sisters and three primary care trained nurses to provide treatment and consultation services. Our practice nursing sisters may be consulted on a range of general health issues and can advise on the practical aspects of dealing with many illnesses. Sister Prestage and Sister Swinburn have undergone training in family planning. They are able to undertake general health screening including the taking of cervical smears. They are available to advise about health aspects of foreign travel and to carry out foreign travel immunization. They assist the doctors with the care of long-term illnesses including heart disease, high blood pressure, asthma, diabetes and advice about special diets.
Appointments with one of the nursing sisters are available most mornings and most afternoons at both surgeries
