Practice nurses can offer a wide range of services including:
- general advice on a wide range of health matters (many initial enquiries can best be answered by seeing a nurse rather than a doctor)
- health promotion advice, especially the assessment and management of risk factors for heart disease and stroke
- dressings, treatment of minor wounds, removal of stitches
- foreign travel advice and immunisation
- tetanus immunisation
- childhood immunisations
- anti-coagulation clinics
Little Common has a team of five practice nurses and Old Town has four.
