The nursing team at the Surgery consists of 2 - 3 Practice Nurses who are available by appointment for a full range of nursing services such as:-
Immunisations, including the flu vaccination from October each year & the pneumococcal vaccination (check with the nurse to see if you are eligible for these vaccinations on the NHS).
Blood Pressure checks
Health Promotion and long term illness clinics
Cervical smears; remember that it is important for all women under the age of 65 years who have not had a hysterectomy, to have regular smears every three years
Travel vaccinations; please leave plenty of time before travelling, as some vaccinations need to be given up to 4-6 weeks in advance of travelling. A fee will be charged for some vaccinations that are not covered on the NHS.
