Nurse Practitioners

Advanced Nurse Practitioners are highly-trained professionals and can undertake complex reviews of patients, just like GPs. They can assess symptoms and build a picture of a patient's condition, treat minor health problems, infections, minor injuries and prescribe medication where necessary. They are also able to make referrals for patients who present with undiagnosed/undifferentiated problems.
