A Nurse Clinic is an administrative arrangement enabling PATIENTS to see or be in contact with 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 or be in contact with a doctor even though PATIENTS may be referred to a doctor by the NURSE and seen or be in contact during the same attendance or contact. Note that this excludes PATIENTS attending or in contact with a Consultant Clinic or a Midwife Clinic. It also excludes Sexual and Reproductive Health Clinics. Nurse Clinics may run in adjacent, concurrent sessions to Consultant Clinic Sessions.
