Many problems you may feel you need to see the Doctor about can easily be dealt with by the nurse, please ask when you book an appointment.

Although most of our nurses can do all of the above, they also have specialist interests:

Jean Morgan (Senior Nurse) -Diabetic clinics and Cardiovascular clinics

Sally Moss Cardiovascular reviews and health checks

District Nurses

A District Nurse is a highly qualified experienced nurse who works in the community.

The District Nurses hold similar skills to the practice nurses however they deal with patients that are too ill or infirm to attend the surgery to see the Practice nurse.

The District Nurses can be contacted through Reception.
