Two part time practice nurses work until early afternoon. They provide a range of services including cervical smears, chronic disease management and travel immunisations. They also provide advice on how to achieve a healthy lifestyle including help with stopping smoking and obesity. You can arrange to see a practice nurse by phoning 01786 451375 for an appointment. They also offer advice by phone. The practice nurse phone time is 12:30 – 12:45 on Mondays and Wednesdays when a telephone appointment can be made.
If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to offer the time to someone else. You can cancel appointments booked online. Or if you receive text reminders you can cancel your appointment by texting the word 'CANCEL' back. Please do not add any extra information as this will not be seen, just the word cancel.
