Our Nursing TeamOur highly qualified nurses see patients (with asthma, chronic kidney disease, COPD, diabetes, epilepsy, hypothyroidism, heart disease, high blood pressure and stroke disease) for full chronic disease and medication reviews. Our nurses also deal with a range of conditions and health concerns. They can help you with contraception, sexual health, travel immunisations, blood pressure and HRT checks, wound dressings and health/well (wo)man checks. They also take cervical smears and run the smoking cessation and weight management clinics. In addition, our attached District Nurses provide holistic care for housebound patients, with particular emphasis on wound care and palliative care. The District Nurses can also help with continence and mobility problems, and promote independent living by providing advice and equipment for use in the home.
