Practice nurses are qualified and registered nurses. They can help with health issues such as family planning, healthy living advice, blood pressure checks and dressings. The practice nurses run clinics for long-term health conditions such as asthma or diabetes, minor ailment clinics and carry out cervical smears.
As their roles are different it is helpful, when making an appointment, if patients specify what it is for to ensure booking with the correct nurse. We do not want you to have a wasted journey
