There are four 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.
Our nurses are highly trained and carry out a wide range of procedures, offer support and advice and treat patients for many acute and chronic conditions. Nurses are often easier to see and can make you an appointment to see the doctors if clinically needed.
There are a number of points which the practice would like to make to our patients who wish to use “non N.H.S” medical services.
