Nurses and Health Care Assistants

Nurse Practitioners

These are nurses who have undergone additional training and qualifications. They can diagnose, examine, order investigation, refer and prescribe for patients. They are highly valued members of our team and can help you with almost all problems and get a doctors opinion on the day if necessary.
