Nurse Practitioners

Susanne Packham (f)

Susanne Packham is an Advanced Nurse Practitioner in support of the GP team, seeing minor illnesses and prescribing for basic ailments. She also has a specialist interest in Diabetes. For some conditions you may be directed to her rather than a GP. She usually works most days.


In recent years, the role of nurses in general practice has expanded, and the illnesses and conditions that they can deal with has increased. Our Practice Nurses undertake consultations for all immunisations including childhood, travel, flu and tetanus; cervical screening; family planning/health promotion, smoking cessation and education; removal of stitches, dressings; blood tests, ECGs (electrocardiograms); blood pressure tests; ear syringing; elderly health and new patient checks. They also carry out follow-up reviews for asthma, spirometry, high blood pressure, epilepsy, diabetes and coronary heart disease. If you are unsure whether you need to see a nurse or doctor, ask a receptionist who will make an appropriate appointment for you.
