Practice Nurses

Practice Nurses

The UK has been ahead of many other countries in recognising the benefits that nurses bring to the primary care team. They have become significantly more skilled over recent years, and are now providing services to patients that may have previously been delivered by GPs.

Much of their work involves managing the care of patients with long-term conditions and running a wider range of extended services in the practice:

  • monitoring of long-term conditions such as asthmas, diabetes and hypertension
  • support for vulnerable groups of patients
  • cytology services
  • family planning
  • wound care and management
  • smoking cessation
  • childhood and travel vaccinations
