Advanced Nurse Practitioner
Advanced Nurse Practitioners are trained specialist nurses. They have undertaken additional medical education in order to provide advanced nursing care and to prescribe medication. Nurse practitioners can provide treatment and advice for many problems for which you may have seen a doctor for in the past.
Their main areas of expertise are in the management of common illnesses and long term conditions. The nurse practitioners can assess and examine you, make a diagnosis and provide advice and treatment including a prescription if required.
They can make referrals to hospital doctors or other health care professionals, and admit patients into hospital when necessary.
There are some limits to their responsibilities. Unfortunately, they are unable legally to sign a sick certificate, so they will arrange for a GP to do this and you may be asked to call back to collect it. They do not treat new born babies under 4 weeks old or expectant mothers, both of whom are always referred to a doctor.
