Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANP)
Advanced Nurse Practitioners are qualified to see patients with undifferentiated and undiagnosed medical problems, and to make detailed assessment of their health care needs, based on their combined medical and nursing knowledge, including clinical skills that you may not have traditionally associated with nurses, such as history taking, physical examination, diagnoses, and prescribing of medicines. ANPs can also directly refer patients to clinical specialists, such as hospital consultants.
Practice nurses are qualified and registered nurses. They can help with health issues such as family planning, healthy living advice, blood pressure checks and dressings. The practice nurses run clinics for long-term health conditions such as asthma or diabetes, minor ailment clinics and carry out cervical smears.
Healthcare assistants support practice nurses with their daily work and carry out tasks such as phlebotomy (drawing blood), blood pressure measurement and new patient checks. They may act as a chaperone when a patient or doctor requests one.
The Business Manager is involved in managing all of the business aspects of the practice making sure that the right systems are in place to provide a high quality of patient care, human resources, equipment and information technology.
Assistant Practice Manager
Receptionists attend to patients on the phone and in person. They coordinate and organise appointments and documentation to facilitate the smooth running of the Practice and support delivery of quality patient care. Receptionists have a very demanding role. They are there to assist you and we would ask you to be patient during peak times, when the staff have to handle a large volume of calls and enquiries. They will ask you a small amount of personal information about your medical condition – this information is used to ensure your call is dealt with by the correct Clinician and assist fellow Healthcare Professionals who work within the Practice to manage your healthcare and well-being.
