Nurse Practitioners

Nurse Practitioners are able to diagnose and prescribe illness in a similar way to doctors and can care for patients with most acute illnesses. A large proportion of the practice's appointments which are available to book on the day will be with a nurse practitioner. Such appointments are ideal for patients with recent onset of symptoms and doctors are always on hand should their advice be needed.

Paramedics

Paramedics are a vital part of the general practice team. Working alongside our oncall team of Doctors and Nurse Practitioners they come out and visit housebound patients who have become unwell, in order to provide a quick assessment of their condition and support the clinicians on call in making the best decision for each patient's immediate and urgent care needs. When in the practice, they can also see and treat the same conditions as our Acute Illness nurses, namely new onset infections, rashes etc.
