Clinics & Services

Practice nurses

Nurse clinics run every day both morning and afternoon. We have a Health Care Assistants who works along side the practice nurses.

Nurse Clinics

When booking an appointment for the nurse, Phlebotomist or Health Care Assistant it is important to inform reception of the reason  for the appointment. There are certain things that  specific nurses deal with and the health care assistant does not do the same as the nurses. As appointments are set at 10  minute slots, you may need longer with the nurse for your  consultation so informing reception of your reason will enable them to give you enough time with the nurse or health care assistant. All blood tests will be booked in with the phlebotomist unless stated by another clinician. Patients are asked to only book an appointment for a blood test if you have been asked by a clinician to do so.
