Nurses

At Central Surgery we are very fortunate to have a strong and experienced team of Practice Nurses and Health Care Assistants who are able to deal with a range of conditions such as: • Phlebotomy • Complex Wound Dressings • Chronic Disease Management (Diabetes, Asthma, COPD etc) • Monitoring of Blood Pressure • Travel Advice • Adult and Childhood Immunisations • Family Planning • Health Checks As a training practice, our patients may also come into contact with Student Nurses who are frequently placed with us as part of their training. 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.
