They run well-person clinics, travel clinics and are available for health education, including dietary advice and help with stopping smoking. They also give advice on treating minor ailments. All our nurses have advanced qualifications in asthma, diabetic care, spirometry and offer clinic appointments for patients with these long term conditions who need reviews or advice.
