Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANP):

Majella Beattie

We have recently welcomed Majella Beattie to the practice staff to work as an Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANP). ANPs are nurses who have acquired extra skill-sets that enable them to operate at a higher clinical level than normal practice nurses. An ANP can diagnose, prescribe and manage patient conditions in a way similar to GPs. At the moment our ANP appointments are suitable for the following conditions:

    • Coughs/Colds

    • Chest/sinus infections

    • Cold sores/athletes foot

    • Diarrhoea/constipation

    • Ear/nose/throat infections

    • Eye infection/stye/conjunctivitis

    • Hay fever

    • Headaches

    • Indigestion

    • Impetigo/shingles

    • Muscular pain

    • UTIs (but only if the patient does not meet criteria for the Pharmacy service)

    • Vaginal discharge

    • Wound infections



 

The ANP clinics are always supported by the Duty Doctor for advice when required.

 

 

Limitations

    1. The ANP clinics are for self-limiting conditions not linked to an on-going medical condition, in other words patients that have a new set of symptoms that are not part of a chronic pre-existing condition

    1. If a patient has a recurrent infection they should book an appointment with a GP.

    1. Pregnant women and children under five years old should book an appointment with a GP.
