We have a highly skilled team of Practice Nurses based at Clee Medical, who provide a wide range of treatments, advice and support to outpatients. Our Nurses may be able to assist you without the necessity of the need of a Doctor. All our nurses have a wide range of experience and regularly update their skills throughout training sessions.

As a part of the Primary Health Care Team the Nurses have a very important role and deal with many aspects of your care. If you wish to make an appointment, please contact the Receptionists. The Receptionists can help you decide whether it would be better to make appointment with the Doctor or Nurse. You can usually see the Nurse much sooner than the Doctor.
