Nurse Practitioners

When you telephone to request an appointment with the doctor in surgery, you may be offered a consultation with one of our Nurse Practitioners. We have two experienced Nurse Practitioners within the Taff Vale Practice Team. Our patients are now offered more choice, less waiting time and a high standard of care. The Nurse Practitioners are general nurse practitioners with skills of consultation and disease management on a background of previous nurse training and considerable experience. 

The Nurse Practitioners are qualified nurses who have undertaken a further 2 year course of study to degree level with an accompanying independent prescribing qualification who: 

  • Shares the workload and responsibility with the Doctors
  • Provides a complimentary service to the Doctor and choice to the patient
  • Diagnoses, discharges or refers independently
  • Manages minor illnesses, e.g. sore throats, ear ache, rashes etc.
  • Manages chronic disease e.g., asthma, diabetes, chronic chest problems
  • Manages other specific clinics
  • Can issue prescriptions
  • Issues sick notes when appropriate signed by the doctor

Healthcare assistants support practice nurses with their daily work and carry out tasks such as phlebotomy (drawing blood), blood pressure measurement and new patient checks. They may act as a chaperone when a patient or doctor requests one.
