NURSE CLINIC

A type of OUT-PATIENT CLINIC.

A NURSE CLINIC is an administrative arrangement enabling PATIENTS to see a NURSE for assessment, treatment, advice and/or counselling. NURSE CLINICS include clinics where NURSES have their own list of PATIENTS who are not expected to see a doctor even though PATIENTS may be referred to a doctor by the NURSE and seen during the same attendance. Note that this excludes PATIENTS attending a CONSULTANT CLINIC or a MIDWIFE CLINIC. It also excludes FAMILY PLANNING CLINICS. NURSE CLINICS may run in adjacent, concurrent sessions to CONSULTANT CLINIC SESSIONS
