Our nursing team is available by appointment for advice about any health matters, immunisations, family planning and dressings. They carry out blood pressure checks, ECGs, cervical smears and run clinics for patients with chronic diseases, e.g., asthma, diabetes or high blood pressure.

Please note that most blood tests ordered by your doctor are carried out by our Health Care Assistants at a separate appointment. Please specify your requirement when booking an appointment.
