Advanced nurse practitioners are highly experienced and educated members of the care team who are able to diagnose and treat your healthcare needs or refer you to an appropriate specialist if needed.

Advanced nurse practitioners are highly skilled nurses who can:

  • take a comprehensive patient history
  • carry out physical examinations
  • use their expert knowledge and clinical judgment to identify the potential diagnosis
  • refer patients for investigations where appropriate
  • make a final diagnosis
  • decide on and carry out treatment, including the prescribing of medicines, or refer patients to an appropriate specialist
  • use their extensive practice experience to plan and provide skilled and competent care to meet patient’s health and social care needs, involving other members of the health care team as appropriate
  • ensure the provision of continuity of care including follow-up visits
  • assess and evaluate, with patients, the effectiveness of the treatment and care provided and make changes as needed
  • work independently, although often as part of a health care team
  • provide leadership
  • make sure that each patient’s treatment and care is based on best practice


Our practice nurses are available by appointment. They look after much of the ongoing (chronic) illness such as:

  • Asthma               
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
  • Diabetes             
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)       
  • Heart disease                  

as well as offering:                        

  • Travel medicine               
  • Dressing/removal of stitches     
  • Ear syringing      
  • Cervical smears
  • Well person checks/lifestyle advice        

It may therefore be more appropriate to see the nurse rather than the doctor. Please ask the receptionists if you are not sure.

The practice nurses are available between

08:30am and 18:15pm Monday

7.00am-18.15pm Tues-Friday.

Healthcare assistants support practice nurses with their daily work and carry out tasks such as phlebotomy (drawing blood), blood pressure measurement and new patient checks. They may act as a chaperone when a patient or doctor requests one.
