Our Advanced Nurse Practitioners (ANPs) and Nurse Practitioners (NPs) 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 / NP appointments should be used as an alternative to an appointment with a Doctor.
ANPs / NPs are NOT part of our Practice Nursing Team and should NOT be booked for Practice Nursing Team appointments unless booked by a receptionist.
Please see the Appointments section of this website for a full list of the types of appointments which should be booked with our Practice Nursing team instead.
ANPs / NPs cannot
- Issue Sick Notes
- Treat pregnancy related problems
- Treat mental / emotion health problems
- Children who have not yet had their 6 week check
In these cases please book an appointment with a Doctor.
