I am in a small town with a doctors service one day per week. I find having access to a Primary Care Nurse in this area a great benefit. She has established a Well Being Group here where we can discuss health and well-being concerns with her. She acts as a type of triage - encouraging a visit to the WMO or gives explanation re concerns. Also the group brings women together - so automatic discussion takes place, and in many cases fears are allayed, and a visit to the busy EMO is not needed.
Another part of the program is the formation of a Tai Chi Group for older women, plus helping to keep older women fit and also helps prevent falls. As an older woman, I find the services of our Primary Care nurse extremely valuable. She also offers advice re diet (healthy).
