Practice Nursing is a specialised area of nursing in the Primary Health Care setting.
Our highly experienced team of nurses, led by Practice Nurse Manager Gill Lane, are Sally Wood, Els Aalderink and Marion Kirkness. They all have considerable experience between them in all fields of nursing. We are fortunate enough to have a group of exceptionally well qualified relief nurses to compliment our nursing team.
Marion is our qualified ‘smear taker’ nurse and Sally Wood has a strong passionate around smoking cessation.
Our nurses are available for advice, telephone calls and appointments. Our focus is on health promotion, prevention and early detection of illness and in providing support and information. Our nurses provide, Diabetic, Wound Care, Asthma, Smoking Cessation, Cervical Screening, Childhood Immunisations and COPD nurse lead clinics.
The nurses have undertaken courses and gained certification in areas specific to General Practice and are all involved in ongoing Professional Development.
