Advanced Nurse Practitioners
Advanced Nurse Practitioners are highly skilled Nurses who have acquired the expert knowledge base, complex decision making skills and clinical competencies for expanded practice. They essentially work as Doctors.
ANPs can see patients for virtually anything they would normally see a GP for. They diagnose and treat problems, carry out physical examinations, arrange investigations, make referrals and they are independent prescribers.
The only patients they are unable to see are pregnant ladies
Mrs Mandy Bunclark
Mandy has over 25 years of experience working independently in the community visiting and treating housebound patients and patients who have chronic illness.
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 practice manager is involved in managing all of the business aspects of the practice such as making sure that the right systems are in place to provide a high quality of patient care, human resources, finance, patient safety, premises and equipment and information technology. The practice manager supports the GPs and other medical professionals with delivering patient services and also helps to develop extended services to enhance patient care.

Receptionists provide an important link for patients with the practice and are your initial contact point for general enquiries. They can provide basic information on services and results and direct you to the right person depending on your health issue or query. Receptionists make most of the patient appointments with the GPs and Nurses. They also perform other important tasks such as issuing repeat prescriptions and dealing with prescription enquiries, dealing with financial claims and dealing with patient records.
