Nurses

Practice Nurses

Practice Nurses are fully trained in a wide range of skills including immunisations, health promotion, contraception and management of long-term conditions e.g. advise on diet and lifestyle choices, coronary heart disease, hypertension, asthma, diabetes, smoking cessation and obesity. Practice Nurses can extend their skills at Diploma Level and see many patients who previously would have seen the Doctor.

Our practice nurses undertake dressings, suture removal, injections, ear syringing, blood tests, blood pressure checks, etc.

They provide free health checks – there is no need to wait until you are ill. They also run Diabetic, Asthma and Cardiac (Heart) clinics.

Our Practice Nurses are:

  • Advanced Nurse Lead Samantha Mcloughlin (f)
  • Sister Ruth Shurley (f)
  • Sister Nicole Limm (f)

Healthcare Assistants (including Phlebotomy)

Healthcare Assistants are non-registered Nursing staff who assist in patient care and Practice related duties, as directed by and under the supervision of a Registered Healthcare Professional (including Lead Practice Nurse, Practice Manager and GPs).

Our Healthcare Assistants are:
