Why should I choose to see a Nurse Practitioner?
A Nurse Practitioner can provide:
individualised care, focusing not only on the present health problem, but the effects these health problems can have on an individual or their family.
Offer slightly longer appointment times, and arrange on-going and follow up assessments with individuals of any age.
Explain details of medications, health information/advice, explore people’s worries and concerns about their health and their health care needs.
Provide information people need to enable them to make individual choices in relation to their health.
