How long an appointment do I need?
Practice Nurse appointment slots vary in length depending on the condition you have and/or the clinic you are attending. When booking a Practice Nurse appointment, you will be asked what type of service you need by our Receptionist. Not all nurses cover all services, so the Receptionist needs to know which nurse is best for you.
Clinics run daily and appointments can usually be booked up to 4 weeks in advance.
Please call our appointment line 01928 566561 to book any nurse appointments.
