The Role of the Nurse Practitioner
We are very lucky to have three excellent Advanced Nurse Practitioners with the ability to prescribe independently as part of our Clinical team. Sister Rushton leads the nursing team supported by Sheryl Cooke and Richard Simpkin. who will see the majority of our acute 'on the day' minor ailment patients as well as caring for our patients with complex chronic diseases. If you ring for an emergency appointment your appointment will be either scheduled with the Nurse Practitioner or a GP depending on the nature of the problem.
