Some of our nursing staff have undergone a period of intensive minor illness training and are therefore able to undertake many consultations and examinations of adults and children over the age of 1, which otherwise would have been carried out by the doctor.
Minor illnesses that can be assessed by the minor Illness nurse are
Urine infections /cystitis
Colds and flu like illness
Rashes and childhood infections e.g. chicken pox
Muscle sprains but not suspected fractures
Minor eye problems i.e. suspected conjuctivitis
