Nurse Services

At Epsom Medical Centre, our team of caring and experienced nurses are here to help and will work with you to ensure you get continuity of care that meets your needs.

Offering complementary skills to our GP team, our nursing team is the first point of contact for many of your health needs, and there may be times when it’s more appropriate for you to see a nurse rather than your GP.

Our nursing team provides a variety of services including:
