Practice Nurses are able to advise on a wide range of health matters, including travel health and immunisations, family planning, diet and exercise, stop smoking and minor ailments. They also run diabetic, asthma and heart disease clinics. In addition, they are responsible for nursing procedures: smears, blood pressure reviews, and immunisations. 

Healthcare Assistants

Healthcare assistants (HCA) support practice nurses with their daily work and carry out tasks such as blood pressure measurement and new patient checks. They may act as a chaperone when a patient or doctor requests one.

At present Bridge Road Medical Centre does not employ a HCA.
