UPDATE 04.09.21 Influenza Vaccine Delivery Issues

Clinics booked for 18th September for the 65 years and overs is cancelled. The message received from the supplier is "due to unforeseen road freight challenges, there will be a delay to the scheduled delivery by one to two weeks." 

Once the Surgery knows more and has a confirmed date, we can once again rebook appointments. Until then all patients booked into the 18th September are cancelled and this may possibly effect the 25th September. Once we know more we will update you. 

We realise what a huge inconvenience this is to you, as well as to the Surgery. Please bear with us - as soon as we have a clear confirmed date we will be contacting again to rebook.
Thank you for your continued support

Nurse Practitioners

The Practice currently has four Nurse Practitioners who have specialist skills and experience.

They all run their own clinics and can offer assessment and advice on minor illnesses, minor injuries, home care, and medication available from the chemist without a prescription, and a wide range of other medical issues.

Nurse practitioners are qualified experienced nurses, educated up to a Masters degree level, who work as independent, autonomous practitioners.

Nurse practitioners training enables them to:

  • Perform an in-depth clinical physical examination
  • Initiate investigations where necessary
  • Reach a diagnosis
  • Advise on treatments and where necessary prescribe medication for acute problems
  • Refer to other members of the healthcare team where appropriate or necessary.

The Nurse Practitioners are available daily as part of Clinician Call Back and by appointment on request.

Nurse Practitioners are able to prescribe independently. A Doctor is always available to review you if the Nurse Practitioner feels it is necessary.
