Sister Jo Wilson
Our Nurse Practitioner is an experienced specialist nurse who works in partnership with and under the guidance of the doctors. Jo has achieved additional higher qualifications in order to provide advanced nursing care and is qualified as a Nurse Prescriber.
Nurse Practitioners can provide treatment and advice for most common problems and minor injuries. When you book an appointment, you may be offered a same-day Nurse Practitioner appointment if the receptionist feels this is appropriate.
A nurse practitioner is able to cover most things a Dr can do including assess and examine you, make a diagnosis and provide treatment and advice including a prescription if required. She can refer you for further advice and admit patients into hospital where necessary.
Our practice nurses provide the following services:
- Cervical smears
- Health checks and promotion – diabetes, heart disease, asthma, COPD, blood pressure
- Healthy living advice
- Leg ulcer management
- Minor injuries
- Removal of stitches
- Travel health advice and immunisation
- Wound management
Please specify what type of problem your appointment is for when you book to ensure you are given an appointment with an appropriate nurse for the correct length of time.

Healthcare assistants support practice nurses with their daily work and carry out tasks such as phlebotomy (drawing blood), blood pressure measurement, ear syringing and ECGs . They may act as a chaperone when a patient or doctor requests one,
