Clinics & Services

Nurse Practitioners

There are three nurse practitioners working at Hathaway. All have completed a course at degree level gaining extended skills in history taking, examination, diagnosis and treatment of a broad range of medical problems. The nurse Practitioners are also able to prescribe medications without referring to a GP and refer patients directly to hospitals and for further investigations if required.

Nurse Practitioners are part of the on call team and now see all patients requesting a same day appointment who would once have seen a GP thereby freeing up GP time to see patients with more complex long term conditions. However we work closely with and are supported by an on-call GP should we require medical advice within the course of our daily work.
