Nurse Practitioners

When requesting an appointment you may be asked if your problem is something the Nurse Practitioner can deal with as they will be able to diagnose and treat your condition. They can also prescribe medication.

Nurse Practitioners have completed extensive specialist training in diagnosis, examination, disease management and prescribing to enable them to see and treat patients. If you require an appointment for any of the following; sore throats, ear infections, conjunctivitis, asthma, chest infection, urine infections, vaginal infections, rashes or other common ailments, you can be seen by the Nurse Practitioner.

We also have specialist nurses trained in the management of asthma, chronic obstructive airways disease (COPD), diabetes, coronary heart disease (CHD), family planning and kidney disease.
