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. They are trained in and regularly carry out cervical smears. Practice nurses also run clinics for various long-term health conditions such as asthma or diabetes. Nurses can have additional skills and train as nurse practitioners. Some nurses can prescribe medication and are called nurse independent or supplementary practitioners.

Healthcare Assistants

Healthcare assistants support practice nurses with their daily work and carry out tasks such as phlebotomy (drawing blood), blood pressure measurements and new patient checks. They also perform wound checks and assist with the removal of stitches and staples, and are trained to give most injections, such as the flu vaccine. They may act as a chaperone when a patient or doctor requests one.
