Non-urgent advice: Our Nursing & Clinical Team

Practice Nurses

Our practice nurses Liz and Kathy carry out a full range of nursing procedures including dressings, removal of stitches, immunisations and cervical screening. They run well-person clinics, travel clinics and are available for health education, including dietary advice. All our nurses have advanced qualifications in asthma, diabetic care, and offer clinic appointments for patients with these long term conditions who need reviews or advice.

District Nurses

We have district nurses attached to the practice. They provide nursing care to patients in their own homes. They can also teach and provide support to carers who look after elderly and disabled people.


If you are expecting a baby, your care before and after the baby is born will be provided by both the doctor and our midwife. The midwife runs an antenatal clinic at the surgery, as well as seeing patients in their own homes. Pick up a maternity pack at reception after your first visit.
