|Sister Jo Wilson|
Our Nurse Practitioner is an experienced specialist nurse who works in partnership with and under the guidance of the doctors. Jo has achieved additional higher qualifications in order to provide advanced nursing care and is qualified as a Nurse Prescriber.
Nurse Practitioners can provide treatment and advice for most common problems and minor injuries. When you book an appointment, you may be offered a same-day Nurse Practitioner appointment if the receptionist feels this is appropriate.
A nurse practitioner is able to cover most things a Dr can do including assess and examine you, make a diagnosis and provide treatment and advice including a prescription if required. She can refer you for further advice and admit patients into hospital where necessary.
