Nurse Practitioners

The Nurse Practitioners work side by side with the GPs here.  They are able to work independently to diagnose and prescribe for a wide variety of conditions that would have traditionally been provided for by a GP.  In some circumstances they can discuss your case further with a GP or arrange an appointment for you.
