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.

Treatment Room Nurses

The Treatment Room Nurses carry out tasks such as phlebotomy (drawing blood), blood pressure measurement and wound and dressing management. They also administer injectable medications, such as long-acting contraception or Vitamin B12, and are involved in childhood immunisations with the Practice Nurse. They may act as a chaperone when a patient or doctor requests one.
