Nurse Practitioners

Sister Margaret McArdle
Sister Amanda Davidson

Our 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.

Specialist Nurses

Sister Lorraine Brand
Sister Louise Dass

Our Advanced Nurse Practitioners are qualified and registered nurses who have undergone further training to allow them to work in a General Practice setting. They work closely with the GPs and are able to deal with many clinical conditions in most age groups.

Treatment Room Nurses

The Treatment Room Nurses carry out tasks such as phlebotomy (drawing blood), blood pressure measurement and wound and dressing management. They also administer injectable medications, such as long-acting contraception or Vitamin B12, and are involved in childhood immunisations with the Practice Nurse. They may act as a chaperone when a patient or doctor requests one.
