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.
Theygive valued assistance to the doctors by seeing patients and prescribing medication where necessary.
Our team of nursing sisters run the Practice Treatment Rooms. They provide a wide range of services such as taking blood, giving injections, dressing wounds and are available for advice on minor illnesses. They also provide advice on promoting better health, travel immunisations and weight reduction. In addition they play an important role in the regular review of hypertension, diabetes, asthma and heart disease.
