Noticeboard

Update 29.11.21

Dear Patients, 

Due to unprecedented staff shortages, we are extremely busy at the moment and you may therefore have to wait longer than we would like for routine consultations. 

Please bear with us during busy times and help our staff by considering other options on offer such as the Community Pharmacy consultation Service. 

Please treat our staff with consideration and respect during this difficult time. 

Thank you

Friarwood Surgery Partners. 

Nurse Practitioners

The Practice currently has four Nurse Practitioners who have specialist skills and experience.

They all run their own clinics and can offer assessment and advice on minor illnesses, minor injuries, home care, and medication available from the chemist without a prescription, and a wide range of other medical issues.

Nurse practitioners are qualified experienced nurses, educated up to a Masters degree level, who work as independent, autonomous practitioners.

Nurse practitioners training enables them to:

  • Perform an in-depth clinical physical examination
  • Initiate investigations where necessary
  • Reach a diagnosis
  • Advise on treatments and where necessary prescribe medication for acute problems
  • Refer to other members of the healthcare team where appropriate or necessary.

The Nurse Practitioners are available daily as part of Clinician Call Back and by appointment on request.

Nurse Practitioners are able to prescribe independently. A Doctor is always available to review you if the Nurse Practitioner feels it is necessary.
