It may be that your condition can be dealt with by the nurses who are qualified to deal with problems such as abdominal pain, bites and stings, cystitis, diarrhoea and vomiting, earache, emergency contraception, eye problems, hay fever, infected wounds, injuries, rashes, vaginal discharge, chest infections, back/knee/joint pain, impetigo, headaches, heartburn, rhinitis, sinusitis and other nasal problems, sore throats, tonsillitis and many more.
Please tell the receptionist that you would like to make an appointment with the nurse prescriber or minor illness nurse.
Practice nurses are available in the treatment room every morning and some evenings. You may make an appointment to see the nurse if you have a problem that does not require a doctor, such as dressings, injections before going abroad, blood pressure checks (we have two machines in our patient waiting areas for you to use at your convenience without the need for an appointment), cuts, ear syringing, and information about diet, alcohol or smoking.
