Health Care Assistant

We have two Health Care Assistants who hold surgeries by appointment, who can be seen without referral from the doctor for the following:

  • Routine blood tests
  • Blood pressure check
  • NHS Health Checks
  • Ear syringing
  • ECG’s
  • Urine analysis
  • Height and weight measurements


We have fully trained dispensers who dispense medication for our patients under the supervision of the doctors.

District Nurses

Patients who are confined to their homes and need nursing care may arrange with their doctor for a district nurse to visit. The hospital will normally arrange for a district nurse to visit patients discharged from hospital who still need nursing care. The district nurses call at the surgery every day and messages may be left for them at reception.
