Ear, nose, throat and chest problems


Skin - rashes, infected wounds, shingle, nappy rash, eczema

Healthcare Assistants

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