We have a team of registered and enrolled nurses who are able to help you with a variety of issues. There is a wide range of experience across our nursing team and you may see a number of nurses over the course of your care.
We love to help with injections such as B12 and Prolia. You will generally be booked with a nurse to deliver the injection and then with your doctor. This helps to free up your doctor’s time for issues that only they can help you with such as repeat prescriptions.
We have a range of wound care expertise within the team, we remove sutures and staples and will usually help your doctor with procedures such as excisions.

In addition our nurses may ask to spend some time with you while you are waiting for your doctor. They will use this time to update your family health history, measure your blood pressure or weight/BMI and discuss routine screening for health problems such as bowel cancer and breast screening. This allows you to make the most of your time with your doctor by focussing on your most important concerns.
All of our nurses are trained to work in General Practice and participate in continuing professional development every year to maintain their registration.
