Our Advanced Nurse Practitioners (ANPs) are qualified to do most of the things a GP can do (see exceptions below) and can diagnose, prescribe medication, and refer to other services / hospital.
ANP appointments should be used as an alternative to an appointment with a Doctor.
ANPs are NOT part of our Practice Nursing Team and should NOT be used for Practice Nursing Team appointments. Please see the Appointments section of this website for a full list of they types of appointments which should be booked with our Practice Nursing team.
- Issue Sick Notes
- Treat pregnancy related problems
- Treat mental / emotion health problems
- Treat patients with Kidney disease (Stage 3 or 4)
In these cases please book an appointment with a Doctor.
We also have a Nurse Practitioner (Sue Harle) who works in a similar way to our Advanced Nurse Practitioners but will need a Doctor's signature for prescriptions and cannot see children under 2 year's old.
