To ensure a coordinated approach to your healthcare Nurse Practitioners can consult and liaise with other healthcare professionals including GPs, medical and surgical specialists, other nurses, dieticians, occupational therapists, social workers and many others.
Nurse Practitioners are NOT Doctors. The Nurse Practitioner role creates another tier of ‘Nurse’ which incorporates a much greater clinical scope and responsibility. They use their advanced training and skills to reach the more common problems faced by patients.
