Nurse Practitioners

Nurse Practitioners are specialist nurses who are highly trained to examine, assess and prescribe.  They work closely with the doctors in  providing a high standard of medical care and you may be offered an appointment with a nurse practitioner as an alternative to a doctor. They have training beyond that of a practice nurse and are able to treat a wide variety of illnesses and conditions.  Nurse practitioners are able to prescribe medication.  A doctor is always available if they require advice on your further management.
