Nurse Practitioners and Practice Nurses

Advanced Nurse Practitioners all have a Masters degree in Advanced Nursing Practice. They undertake many of the tasks traditionally handled by doctors, including diagnosis, writing prescriptions, arranging tests, and referral. They are part of our same day team appointment system. Patients can book appointments with nurses as well as with doctors.

There are three Advanced Nurse Practitioners who give valued assistance to the doctors by seeing patients and prescribing medication where necessary. They are:

Rosie Jones RGN, MSc Advanced Nursing Practitioner, MSc

Melanie Hayward RGN. PgDip asthma, PgDip ANP, MSc Advanced Nurse Practitioner

Amanda Sheldon, MSc Advanced Nurse Practitioner
