A Specialist Nurse will undertake many of the nursing procedures at the surgery, such as child immunisations, ECGs, dressings and injections.  They are also trained to perform annual reviews with patients who have long term chronic conditions such as diabetes, COPD or heart disease.  They undertake separate training for each type of problem, so not every nurse can undertake all types of reviews if they haven't completed training for all.  In addition Specialist Nurses will perform smear tests and pill checks and other contraceptive work, but again, they must have passed the specific training for these procedures.
