An Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANP) has joined our team, to help reduce waiting times to see your GP.
Jennifer can assess, diagnose, treat and prescribe medication for minor illnesses and long term conditions which you may have seen the GP for in the past.
Problems they can help you with include;
- Chest and urine infections
- Muscular and joint pain
- Diarrhoea and vomiting
- Cold and flu symptoms
- Anxiety & depression
- Rashes and allergies
- Hay fever
They can also refer to hospital services and arrange sick notes with a Doctor.
If you have an urgent medical condition which requires a same day emergency appointment, the ANP will assess you over the telephone and decide what is needed next. You may need advice that can be provided there and then, a prescription which they can prepare for you to collect or an appointment to see the ANP or a GP.
Leaflets with further information on how the ANP can help you are available from reception.
