This service is run by our Practice Nurse and is designed to treat ailments in which our Nurse is a specialist.
We recommend you always see your local pharmacy first and if symptoms persist then book in with our minor illness nurse.
This is a quicker route to be seen as the Duty Doctor may refer you to the Minor Illness Nurse anyway. So why not go there first? If your symptoms turn out to be more acute than envisaged you will be given an appointment with the doctor.
The Nurse is qualified to issue prescriptions.
