The nursing team deals with a range of conditions and health concerns and are experts in many areas of disease management including asthma, COPD, diabetes and hypertension. Our Acute Illness Nurse, Sister Anne Pragnell, also holds acute illness clinics twice weekly. The Nurse sees a variety of conditions during the clinics including rashes, muscle pains, respiratory problems, tummy aches, infections and temperatures. If you feel you need to seek medical advice for your illness you will be offered an appointment with the Acute Illness Nurse if appropriate. They work alongside the Acute Illness Doctor so that additional advice can be sought if necessary and, where required, prescriptions issued for patients.
