Nurse Practitioners

Our  Advanced Nurse Practitioners (ANPs) are qualified to do most of the things a GP can do (see exceptions below) and can diagnose, prescribe medication, and refer to other services / hospital.

ANP appointments should be used as an alternative to an appointment with a Doctor.

ANPs are NOT part of our Practice Nursing Team and should NOT be used for Practice Nursing Team appointments.  Please see the  Appointments section of this website for a full list of they types of appointments which should be booked with our Practice Nursing team. 

ANPs cannot

  • Issue Sick Notes
  • Treat pregnancy related problems
  • Treat mental / emotion health problems

In these cases please book an appointment with a Doctor.

We also have a Nurse Practitioner (Sue Harle) who works in a similar way to our Advanced Nurse Practitioners but will need a Doctor's signature for prescriptions and cannot see children under 6 months old.
