The practice nurses are professional people in their own right and may be seen by appointment.
They can often help with problems that patients may not wish to see the doctor about. They also provide many of the preventative monitoring and screening services for the practice and deal with the following:
- Cervical Smears
- Stop Smoking Advice
- Contraception Advice
and many other health promotion clinics.
To request a visit from the district nurses please telephone the surgery and leave a message with the reception for your Doctor to refer you. District Nurse appointments are in high demand and are for patients who are Housebound or unable to make it to the practice.
Alternatively you can contact them on 01273 242117, then follow the option for the precise service you require.
