Nurses

We currently do not have a practice nurse. However our two Health Care Assistants performs a variety of tasks, so please give reception details of what you need so they can direct you to the correct member of staff.

Patients who require routine cervical smears, childhood immunisations or ear syringing will be given an appointment to see one of the local Nurse Practitioners who are based at GP clinics at one of our two hubs either within St Charles Hospital or the Violet Melchett centre. There are appointments for these nurses also in the evenings and at weekends for the convenience of our patients.

Please let the receptionist know the reason for your appointment so we can make sure you are given an appointment with whoever can help you as some services are provided only with a particular Health Care Assistant.

Please ensure you specify the clinic service you require as different nurses and our Health care Assistant offer different services. Please ask reception for any help in this regard.
