Emergency nurse practitioner Guy Fiske said: "It can get very busy here in the summer months with patients coming in with burns, ankle sprains and wrist fractures.

"We have a very experienced nursing team here and there are several fractures and dislocations that the nurse practitioners can manipulate and we work closely with the x-ray department at Cromer Hospital."

The nurse-run service is open seven days a week from 8am to 7.45pm.
