We have a large, highly qualified team of nurses led by a Nurse Partner, Bridget Kingcox.
Advanced Nurse Practitioners
Advanced Nurse Practitioners are specialist nurses who are highly trained to examine, assess and prescribe. They work closely with the doctors in providing a high standard of medical care and you may be offered an appointment with a nurse practitioner as an alternative to a doctor. They are trained to Masters degree level and are able to treat a wide variety of illnesses and conditions. Advanced Nurse practitioners are able to prescribe medication.
Practice Nurses are experienced nurses with specialist knowledge in chronic disease management such as diabetes and respiratory problems. They also provide a wide range of services including travel health advice and vaccinations, injections, family planning, health checks and cervical screening.
Clinical research is essential for continually improving standards of patient care. Research Nurses play a vital role in ensuring clinical research studies run smoothly and that participants are safe and fully informed.
