  • minor and complex wound management including leg ulcers
  • travel health advice and vaccinations
  • child immunisations and advice
  • family planning & women’s health including cervical smears

  • screening and helping patients to manage long term conditions
General practice nurses may also have direct supervision of healthcare assistants at the practice.
