A nurse consultation session consists of 12 appointments which are bookable two weeks in advance, with two appointments released on the day for any urgent requests i.e. dressings. Dependent on the procedure been performed will dictate the duration of the appointment. For example an appointment for a blood pressure check is 15 minutes, however an appointment for an annual diabetic review is 20 minutes.
