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 Julia Bourne, also holds acute illness clinics each day. She sees a variety of conditions during her 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. She works alongside the Duty Doctor so that additional advice can be sought if necessary and prescriptions issued for patients. As an Acute Illness Nurse, Julia is not able to treat babies under 1 year or patients with mental health issues.
