Nurse Practitioners

Healthcare Assistants

Healthcare assistants support practice nurses with their daily work and carry out tasks such as phlebotomy (drawing blood), blood pressure measurement and new patient checks. They may act as a chaperone when a patient or doctor requests one.

Phlebotomy clinics run throughout the week. Alternatively you can book in with the healthcare assistant. There is a children's phlebotomy service run at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary, where creams or sprays can be used to anaesthetise the skin. Parents can ring 01484 342664 to book their child's appointment date and time.
