Nurse Practitioners

Lynn Morris

Nurse practitioners can support patients with long term conditions and often provide the first point of contact for patients, particularly those with minor illnesses. They have been trained to be able to provide aspects of care previously carried out by GPs.

They are able to:

  • take a full patient history
  • carry out any physical examinations
  • use their knowledge to identify a likely diagnosis
  • request appropriate tests to aid diagnosis (blood tests, x-rays, scans)
  • refer patients to an appropriate specialist (in the practice or hospital)
  • prescribe medicines and non-medical treatments
  • arrange follow up and ongoing management

Receptionists provide an important link for patients with the practice and are your initial contact point for general enquiries. They can provide basic information on services and results and direct you to the right person depending on your health issue or query. Receptionists make most of the patient appointments with the GPs and nurses. They also perform other important tasks such as issuing repeat prescriptions and dealing with prescription enquiries, dealing with financial claims, dealing with patient records and carrying out searches and practice audits.
