Advanced Nurse Practitioners

Advanced Practitioners can provide treatment and advice for many problems for which you may have seen a doctor for in the past. Their main areas of expertise are in the management of common illnesses and long term conditions. Advanced Practitioners are all trained specialist nurses who have undertaken additional education in order to provide advanced nursing care and prescribe. Same day Advanced Practitioner appointments are available every weekday for common illnesses. You will be offered a consultation with the Advanced Practitioner if you ring for an urgent appointment. The Advanced Practitioner can assess and examine you, make a diagnosis and provide advice and treatment including a prescription if required. They can make referrals to hospital doctors or other health care professionals, and admit patients into hospital when necessary. Unfortunately, they are unable legally to sign a sick certificate, so you will need to see your own GP for this. They work closely with your GP and liaise frequently with her/him about your care.

Receptionists provide an important link for patients with the practice and are your initial contact point for general enquiries.
