Our practice has one fully qualified RGN practice nurse, Anna Sayce, together with one fully qualified Health Care Assistant, Rachel.
Practice nurses are qualified and registered nurses. They can help with issues such as contraception, healthy living advice, cytology, blood pressure checks and dressings. They also check patients’ hearts with ECG equipment and review lung function using spirometry machines.
The practice nurses run clinics for long-term conditions such as asthma, diabetes, stroke, heart and kidney disease. They undertake all of our vaccinations including our annual flu clinics.
Rachel is an accredited healthcare assistant and in addition to her regular role is the practice champion for Carers and patients who have suffered from domestic abuse.
