The practice nurses perform many tasks including dealing with dressings, cervical smears, ear syringing and minor problems. They work closely with the doctors with those patients with chronic illness such as diabetes, high blood pressure, asthma and are also available for travel vaccinations (inc yellow fever) and advice etc.
We are sad to see the departure of Marianne Hamlyn on May 17th. She has worked so tirelessly and enthusiastically for the practice, but is moving to East Kent for family reasons. We wish her luck in her new job in Dover. Happily we have recruited Alison Tinsley who has worked for many years in a Maidstone practice. She will offer a full range of nursing skills as well as doing Asthma checks and Diabetes reviews.
