There is currently a team of practice nurses delivering a fully comprehensive and advanced range of nursing services. In some cases nurses are now delivering care that was once only performed by medical staff and for many chronic diseases the team delivers care in much the same way whether it be a doctor or nurse. All our nurses are highly trained and experienced in nursing generally and in primary care nursing specifically. They each have their own particular interests, specialities and responsibilities within the team and are actively encouraged in extra and specialist training.
