Nurse Practitioners

Advanced Nurse Practitioners (ANPs) are Registered Nurses who are highly experienced with further education and training at Masters level. This allows them to diagnose and treat your healthcare needs. As well as prescribing they can also refer individuals to secondary care both in acute situations and routinely. They work closely with GP's who support ANP's when required. You may be able to see an ANP quicker than a GP. Please ask if this is an option when booking appointments.
