Nurse Practitioners

Jaswir Dhalivaal (f)

Advance Nurse Practitioner - MSc, BSc (Wolverhampton) 2008

The role of Advanced Nurse Practitioner is invaluable. It provides opportunity for patients to receive timely care and negate unnecessarily delay in receiving treatment, especially with the growing shortage of GPs in primary care. ANPs in the community and primary care are able to develop close, long-term relationships with their patients and work in partnership with them to achieve optimum health. Advanced Nurse Practitioners are autonomous in making decisions based on assessment, diagnosis and interpretation of test results. ANPs are able to independently prescribe appropriate medication, evaluate or refer to other specialists if necessary.
