As well as dealing with minor illness, dressings and minor wounds, the nurses run most of the preventative care programmes. This includes asthma clinics, blood pressure checks, cervical smears, blood tests, diabetic and heart disease checks and vaccinations. The nursing team also give advice concerning diet, travel and general health matters.
Broom Leys Surgery is fortunate to be involved in Student Nurse Training. This is an exciting opportunity for them to learn about Practice Nursing, they are fully supported by Trained Practice Nurses during their placement.
If you do not wish the student nurse to remain present during your appointment, please do not worry to ask for a private consult with the Nurse.
