Practice nurses are qualified and registered nurses. They can help with health issues such as family planning, healthy living advice, blood pressure checks and dressings. The practice nurses run clinics for long-term health conditions such as asthma or diabetes, minor ailment clinics and carry out cervical smears. Travel Advice is needed at least six weeks before travel and some vaccines need to be ordered and paid for as they are not routinely kept in stock- please leave enough time to discuss your travel arrangements before travelling.
