We are delighted to have two Advanced Nurse Practitioners (ANPs) working with us at Woodhead Medical Practice. Kerry Donoghue has completed her training as a ANP and works Tuesday morning in the practice. Michelle Dalgarno is in training as an ANP having worked as a District Nursing Sister for many years and works in the practice on Monday afternoon and Friday morning.
ANPs are highly experienced and educated nurses who are able to assess, investigate, diagnose, and prescribe. They can deal with a variety of problems including respiratory infections, ear ache, urine infections, bowel or digestive problems, skin conditions and rashes and joint or muscle problems.
If you are calling the surgery, our receptionists will ask for a brief description of your problem. This is to ensure that you receive an appointment with the most appropriate person. Our ANPs can manage many health care problems without the need for you to see a GP.
