Our nurses have been specially trained to undertake healthcare monitoring for patients with long-term conditions. Our nurse practitioner is also able to prescribe a limited range of medications.
If patients see our nursing team for routine healthcare needs or for straightforward medical help it means that our doctors have more time to see patients with more complex healthcare needs. It also means that our GPs have more time to undertake procedures, such as minor surgery, that used to be done only in hospital.
The reception staff can generally advise whether an early appointment with the nurse will be satisfactory for your particular health problem. However, you do not have to inform the reception staff if you prefer to wait for an appointment with a GP.
