Dear Patients of Connaught Surgery, We are very happy to announce that two new Practice Nurses are joining the Practice . Nurse M Jones joins the Surgery in January 2019 and Nurse E Yembeau in February 2019.
Practice nurses are qualified and registered nurses. They can help with health issues such as family planning, healthy living advice, blood pressure checks and dressings. The practice nurses run clinics for long-term health conditions such as asthma or diabetes, minor ailment clinics and carry out cervical smears.
|Healthcare assistants support practice nurses with their daily work and carry out tasks such as phlebotomy (drawing blood), blood pressure measurement and new patient checks. They may act as a chaperone when a patient or doctor requests one.|
