Dear Patients of Connaught Surgery, We are very sad to announce that our Practice Nurse is leaving the Practice at the end of August 2018 after 2 years of dedicated service. We will all miss Nurse Gallinelli and would like to wish her good health & luck for the future. Thank You

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.|
