Practice nurses are qualified and registered nurses. They can help with health issues such as family planning, healthy living advice, blood pressure checks and dressings. The practice nurses run clinics for long-term health conditions such as asthma or diabetes, minor ailment clinics and carry out cervical smears.

At Southbourne Surgery we also have an Emergency Care Practitioner, Mr Ed Gardner who will triage our daily 'urgent' list, along with our prescribing/triage Nurse Hazel D'Alvarez. They will triage our 'on the day' calls and appointments, provide self-care advice and undertake some home visits.
