Specialist Neighbourhood Nurse

Carly Fisher 

Carly is the Specialist Neighbourhood Nurse for the Hereward Practice, she works mainly in the community with patients. She helps patients to identify and focus on “what matters to me” instead of “what is the matter with me”, thereby placing people at the centre of their own care.



Our highly qualified nurses deal with a range of conditions and health concerns. They examine patients, make a diagnosis and plan care, including in some cases prescribe certain products.

They are experts in many areas of disease management such as asthma, diabetes and hypertension. They also work in conjunction with the district nurses to provide leg ulcer management clinics. We also offer a travel clinic.

The nurses are supported by a full team of Healthcare Assistants.
