Advanced Nurse Practitioners

An Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANP) is an experienced and highly educated Registered Nurse who manages the complete clinical care for their patient, not solely any specific condition. ANPs are educated at Masters Level in advanced practice. This level of practice is characterised by high level autonomous decision-making, including assessment, diagnosis, treatment (including prescribing), of patients with complex multi-dimensional problems. Decisions are made using high level expert knowledge and skills. This includes the authority to refer, admit and discharge within appropriate clinical areas. Working as part of the multidisciplinary team ANPs can work in or across all clinical settings, dependent on their area of expertise.

Practice Management

The Practice Manager has the difficult task of keeping the Practice running smoothly. She is responsible for the day-to-day management of the Practice and is bound by the same rules of confidentiality as the doctors and nurses.


Our administration team and receptionists are fully trained and have a difficult job to do. They are the first point of contact for most patients. They help each patient make the best use of the practice resources, answering the telephones, making appointments, updating the computer, etc. As part of their Personal Development Plans, they have successfully completed accredited training through the Practice Receptionist Programme. They are also bound by the same rules of confidentiality as the doctors and nurses.
