When to see a Nurse instead of a Doctor

  • New patients checks e.g. blood pressure / height/ weight
  • Asthma checks yearly – if established diabetic diagnosis
  • COPD (emphysema and chronic bronchitis) checks yearly – if established diabetic diagnosis
  • Diabetes checks –if established diabetic diagnosis
  • Wound dressings e.g. ulcers
  • Suture removals – as indicated by the hospital e.g. post operations / post A&E injury sutures
  • Childhood immunisations (please bring your child’s red book)
  • Flu jabs (when correct season)
  • Ear syringing – please note the doctors do NOT peform this. You need to see the doctor first who then instruct you to make an appointment with the nurse if syringing is needed
  • Travel immunisations – NHS covers only some travel diseases (other disease immunisations will need to be done privately)
  • Cervical Smears (check with reception regarding your last smear – usually 3 yearly)
  • Vaginal swabs e.g. sexually transmitted diseases
  • Repeat contraception e.g. pills/ injections if already established on medication
