Advanced Nurse Practitioners (ANP) are experienced and highly skilled senior nurses with advanced clinical skills.  The role combines advanced nursing skills with clinical, diagnostic and treatment skills.  ANPs are able to prescribe within their own clearly defined remit, and have access to GPs for advice and support and will consult them as needed.  

ANPs deal with patients with an acute (or short term) illness such as abdominal pain, allergies, back pain, chest infections, coughs & colds, diarrhoea & vomiting, ear infections, eye infections, emergency contraception, fever, gout, headaches & migraines, insect bites, skin problems & rashes, shingles, STDs, and urinary infections.
