A Specialist Nurse will undertake many of the nursing procedures at the surgery, such as child immunisations, ECGs, dressings and injections. They are also trained to perform annual reviews with patients who have long term chronic conditions such as diabetes, COPD or heart disease. They undertake separate training for each type of problem, so not every nurse can undertake all types of reviews if they haven't completed training for all. In addition Specialist Nurses will perform smear teests and pill checks and other contraceptive work, but again, they must have passed the specific training for these procedures.
The Practice Nurse or Treatment room Nurse duties include carrying out basic nursing procedures including hearing tests, ear syringing, blood pressure checks, adult immunisations, dressings, diet & healthy lifestyle.
Our Health Care Assistants undertake specific training to allow them to provide a skilled support service to the nursing team and can take blood samples, take your blood pressure, perform ECGs, NHS healthchecks and other support services.
A Phlebotomist is a person who is trained to take blood samples only.
