Nurse Practitioners

Pippa Halley Gehrels

An Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANP) is an experienced, registered nurse who has undergone extra training and qualifications at an advanced level (usually Masters) to enable them to see and treat a wide range of patients.

They work closely with the GPs and can: Fully assess patients, Make diagnoses, Prescribe medicines and treatment, Plan follow-up treatment and reviews, Refer patients for tests and investigations and Refer patients to specialists if needed. 

They can see anyone that a GP would normally see but they do not see under 5s, pregnant women, and patients with severe mental health problems. 

If the ANP is unable to meet your healthcare needs, they will always ensure that you are seen by your GP.
