Nurse Practitioners

From April 2012 we hope to have two Nurse Practitioners working together every morning to assist the on call GP with requests for urgent appointments.

A Nurse Practitioner is a registered Nurse who has completed specific advanced nursing education (generally a Master's degree) and training in the diagnosis and management of common medical conditions. Our Nurse Practitioners are qualified to prescribe some medicines without referral to a GP.
