Janet Ede – RGN Trained in Adults, Advanced Nurse Practitioner Degree with RCN Merit Award.
The Nurse Practitioner provides appointments for acute problems in anyone from birth to old age, just as they would when they do their work in GMEDS. The Nurse Practitioner does not deal with any ongoing (chronic) problems or see patients for pregnancy or pregnancy related ilnessess' once they are 12 weeks or more into the pregnancy. The Nurse Practitioner is able to see patients for emergency gynaecology problems but not for non emergency problems including cervical smears and vaginal swabs - these should be seen by the Practice Nurse or GP as appropriate.
The Nurse Practitioner appointments can be allocated by Reception Staff, Nurse, Nurse Practitioner or GP.
