The nurses are trained to see patients with a wide range of acute and chronic problems offering advice and treatment where appropriate. Our practice nurses have expertise in managing chronic diseases, such as heart disease, asthma, diabetes and COPD.


The team also offer contraceptive advice, travel advice and vaccinations, as well as childhood immunisations for the under 5’s.
