Practice nurses are qualified and registered nurses. They can help with health issues such as family planning, healthy living advice, blood pressure checks and dressings. The practice nurses run clinics for long-term health conditions such as asthma or diabetes, minor ailment clinics and carry out cervical smears.
Millbrook Surgery has a group of 3 Health Coaches working to support our patients and help them to get the most out of the health and care services in the local area.
There are many NHS and voluntary organisations in the area which can help to provide valuable services to help local people to remain healthy and independent, however because they all work independently it can be difficult to access them – the Millbrook Surgery Health Coaches can help with this, as well as many other things.
