Advanced Nurse Practitioners
Nurse Practitioners are experienced specialist nurses who work in partnership with and under the guidance of the doctors. They have achieved additional higher qualifications in order to provide advanced nursing care and are qualified as Nurse Prescribers.
Nurse Practitioners can provide treatment and advice for most common problems and minor injuries. When you book an appointment, you may be offered a same-day Nurse Practitioner appointment if the receptionist feels this is appropriate.
A nurse practitioner is able to cover most things a Doctor can do including assess and examine you, make a diagnosis and provide treatment and advice including a prescription if required. They can refer you for further advice and admit patients into hospital where necessary.
