Nurses & Healthcare Assistants
Did you know our Advanced Nurse Practitioners, Nurses and Health Care Assistants can deal with a wide range of acute problems as well as having specialised knowledge in managing long term conditions?
We can often offer patients an appointment quicker and at a more convenient time or location with these staff members. Speak to a receptionist about your condition and they will be able to advise you if a Nurse or Health Care Assistant would be more appropriate than a GP.
Advanced Nurse Practitioners
ANP’s are qualified Practice Nurses who have undertaken additional training to give them the skills to undertake additional tasks such as taking medical histories; performing examinations; diagnosing illnesses; analysing test results; developing management plans. ANPs can also prescribe and are registered practitioners.
Practice Nurses can perform a wide range of acute procedures and are key in the management of patients with long term conditions such as Asthma and Diabetes.
Health Care Assistants
Our Health Care Assistants are trained and qualified in monitoring and managing long term illnesses as well as providing acute care for things such as Ear Syringing and Vaccinations. They also provide support to the GP’s for Minor Surgery and Contraceptive clinics.
