Nursing Services

The Practice Nurse sees patients by appointment and provides health information and advice, cervical smear testing, ear syringing and blood tests. During Covid 19 you will only be asked to come in to the nurse if it is something that is urgently needed for example blood tests.

The District nurse offers nursing care and assessments at home. The Health visiting team offers support to young families, the elderly and health advice.

Midwifes deal with all aspects of pregnancy. They are now your first point of contact when you have a positive pregnancy test.
