Nursing Staff

Advanced Nurse Practitioners

Advanced Nurse Practitioners are highly skilled and offer patients greater choice and quicker access to a health care professional.

Advanced Nurse Practitioners are highly qualified and experienced clinicians who have received several years’ additional training to enable them to see and treat many of the conditions that your GP would usually diagnose.

Advanced Nurse Practitioners provide high quality healthcare advice and treatment for adults and children including:

  • Individual care on present health problems
  • Diagnosis and treatment of various conditions seen in the Practice
  • Obtaining medical histories and making physical examinations
  • Making referrals to other services where necessary
  • Prescribing medication
  • Providing information to help you make individual choices about your health

Practice Nurses

Practice Nurses are available by appointment. The receptionist will ask what the appointment is for in order to book it with the correct Nurse or clinic. The services they regularly provide include cervical smears, immunisations (both routine and foreign travel), family planning, repeat prescription of contraceptive pills and HRT, testing urine, dressings, removal of stitches, and blood pressure checks. The Practice Nurses also run many of the clinics offered within the Practice and can offer advice/support with stopping smoking.
