Nurse Practitioners

Nurse practitioners see people with undiagnosed problems, and make an assessment or their health using skills not usually undertaken by nurses, such as physical examination. They therefore diagnose, treat, and provide counselling and information about peoples’ health problems. They are able to see people with a wide range of health issues including headache, abdominal pain, fever, tiredness, swollen ankles, coughs and sore throats, urinary problems, women’s health, rashes, ear pain, chest problems to name but a few. They aim to provide a complimentary service, giving patients extra choice, and work as part of the health care team.
