Works full time with our practice and in addition to health promotion and chronic disease management offers accupuncture as an alternative therapy. She is also trained in British Sign Language to level 2 standards, and is trained in Implanon insertion.
Both our nurses are highly qualified and experienced clinicians. They specialise in diabetes, asthma, ischaemic heart disease, family planning, post natal care and travel medicine. They have appointments each day between 08:00 and 18:00 and operate a triage system in the mornings. If you wish to make an appointment to see one of the practice nurses, contact reception. As well as operating clinics for common complaints, they provide prevention care, such as cervical smears, family planning, and well woman and well man clinics. They also run asthma and diabetes clinics, which take place on a Wednesday afternoon. If you are planning to travel abroad and may need vaccinations and travel advice, our nurses will be able to help. There is no fee for this service other than an NHS prescription charge for vaccines. Each winter our nurses offer flu jabs to any patient who may be at risk of complications of influenza, such as over 65's and carers.
