Nurses

We are firm believers in supporting new generations of Practice Nurses through their education and training and feel this is a fundamental part of our job. That said, we are also aware that not all patients may feel comfortable in having a student nurse sit in on their consultation. Therefore, we will always ask our patients up front for their consent as at no time do we want a patient to feel embarrassed or awkward by their presence. We are always grateful when patients agree, but equally completely respect patients' right to privacy.
