Examinations, advice, treatment
Our nursing service includes examinations, advice and treatment and is provided by an accredited parish nurse as part of the Parish Nursing model. Dr Jacobs, a GP from the Vineyard Surgery, also visits our clinic to provide additional support on a monthly basis.
Make an appointment
Our nurses run regular clinic sessions every week on a Monday and Wednesday morning 08.30 – 11:00.
You can make an appointment by talking to a member of staff – drop us a line below – or just pop in to see a nurse when the clinic is in session.
