Our experienced practice nurses have also received additional training in family planning, asthma, diabetes and disease management as well as warfarin management. They also manage wound care in the treatment room. They work closely with the doctors and are trained to do an extensive range of procedures and tests. They are available by appointment for such services as foreign travel vaccinations, cervical smear and routine blood pressure checks, routine health checks on our elderly patients and advice on HRT.
The practice nurses are happy to discuss aspects of losing weight and giving up smoking.

The reception staff are here to help you and are your link with the rest of the health care team. They have a difficult job to do with telephone calls and enquiries coming from every direction. When you telephone for medical attention the receptionist may need to ask for a few details in order to judge the urgency of your request. They have been asked to do this, but the information you give will always be treated in confidence as they are bound by the same rules of confidentiality as doctors and nurses. Please note we operate a zero tollerance policy to abusive patients and have the right to remove any such patients from our register.
At the Albion we have the luxury of having wonderful in-house counsellors who are trained to deal with personal and emotional problems. You are be referred to see one of them after a discussion with your doctor.
