GP matrons support the GPs to care for our housebound patients, in particular care home residents. They also triage home visit requests.
Our practice nurses are available for dressings, injections, immunisations, ECGs, ear syringing, cervical smears, blood pressure checks, suture removal and advice on minor health problems both in their daily surgeries and in our health promotion clinics.
Our nurses also have specialist clinics for chronic diseases, i.e diabetes, asthma, COPD, hypertension and chronic heart disease.
Our healthcare assistants assist the nurse team with everyday routine procedures such as blood tests, ECGs, and BP checks, they also assist by running clinics to record patients’ weight, height etc. This allows the nurse’s time to concentrate on the management of our patients.
