Who should I see?
See the Doctor for new problems, new symptoms and acute illnesses. The Doctor may ask you to come back to see them or an alternative follow up may be arranged with the nurse.
In addition to usual nurse appointments our nurses are skilled in a number of areas and can manage your routine follow up, covering the following areas:-
- Coronary Heart Disease & Stroke
- Lifestyle Advice including Smoking Cessation and Weight Reduction.
The Healthcare Assistants
The Healthcare Assistants can undertake many routine nursing tasks including Blood Tests, ECG recordings and offer smoking cessation advice.
REMEMBER SELF-HELP FOR SIMPLE PROBLEMS SUCH AS COUGHS, COLDS, SORE THROATS, SICKNESS & DIARRHOEA.
