When Should I See a Nurse?
Nurses based at our practice treat patients for a wide range of common conditions (e.g. Chronic disease management patient reviews, travel vaccinations, immunisations and so on). Our practice nurses are also trained to review conditions, such as diabetes and heart disease. You can book up to 4 week in advance to see a nurse and our reception staff will be able to advise whether a nurse appointment is appropriate. We also have a phlebotomist to take patient bloods and blood pressure.
Nursing Care at Home
We work closely with other healthcare professionals who are part of our Primary Health Care Team working in the community, such as the district nursing, long-term condition team, Macmillan nurses, midwives and health visitors. These services are provided by the Hull Health Care Partnership and are based at various location throughout the City. East Riding health authority also help with patients living on the outskirts of Hull.
If you have an illness or incapacity that means that you need nursing care in your own home, the district nurses, will generally visit you. Patients who are likely to benefit from this service include the housebound, the elderly, patients with a terminal illness and those who have recently been discharged from hospital. District nurses provide wound care, palliative care, continence advice, health promotion advice and advice on co-ordinating care packages.
