Sarah Toon has been appointed to the Practice as Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANP). This leaflet explains her role within the practice. Advanced Nurse Practitioners (ANP) are all trained specialist nurses who have undertaken additional university education at degree or masters level, in order to provide advanced nursing care and prescribe. ANP’s can provide treatment and advice for many problems. Their main areas of expertise are in the management of acute (or short term) illnesses. Seeing the ANP does not replace an appointment with a doctor. You will still be able to see your GP if you need to. Appointments Same day ANP appointments are available every weekday for common illnesses. The ANP can assess and examine you, make a diagnosis and provide advice and treatment including a prescription if required. They can make acute referrals to hospital doctors or other health care professionals for on the day assessment and admit patients into hospital when necessary.
