Nurse Diane Elrick (f)

Senior Practice Nurse

Diane is our senior practice nurse. She coordinates the care and monitoring of our chronic conditions such as diabetes, asthma, heart failure, hypertension, epilepsy and many more. If you suffer from one of these conditions we will be writing to you on an annual basis to come in for a health check up. Please book an appointment whenyou receive these letters so that we can discuss how best to care for you. If you are new to the practice please let the doctor or nurse know if you have a chronic illness to make sure that you are added to the annual check up lists.

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.
