Nurse Practitioners

An advanced nurse practitioner is a very highly trained prescribing nurse who is able to see and treat a wide range of medical problems. They work alongside our doctors and can refer you to hospital or for further tests as needed.

Alongside the doctors they run our walk in clinic each morning between 8am and 10.30am. They also see patients for annual reviews, family planning advice and undertake home visits.
