You may be invited to see one of our ANPs rather than a GP. ANPs are highly experienced nurses educated to a master’s level and are able to take a comprehensive history, carry out a physical examination, use their clinical judgement, additional training and knowledge to identify a potential diagnosis. ANPs work in partnership with patients to devise treatment plans that may include further investigations such as x-rays, scans, blood tests and prescribe any required medication. ANPs can also refer to specialist doctors and arrange hospital admissions.
