How can the nursing team help?

The nurses see patients by appointment only. They are able to do cervical smears, immunisations including travel vaccines, some dressings, blood tests and ear syringing.

In addition to this, they play a vital role in the management of patients with diabetes and respiratory disorders. For example, asthma and emphysema, coronary heart disease and they also offer a smoking cessation clinic.

The nurses assist the doctors in minor operations and can chaperone if requested. They can also advise patients in cases where ‘morning after’ contraception may be required.
