Focus on… Advanced Nurse Practitioners

The role of Advanced Nurse Practitioners – or ANPs – has in recent years to offer patients more choice and increase the availability of appointments.

Our three ANPs – Lesley Ransome, Jane Rodger and Sabrina Smith – offer appointments covering a range of common medical conditions that people may previously have seen a GP for.

“As ANPs we see patients in the surgery, and visit them at home. We want to ensure patients receive the best care possible.”

– Lesley, ANP

Advanced Nurse Practitioners. as the name suggests. are Nurses who have completed extra medical training.

The additional clinical skills ANPs possess means they can diagnose patients· conditions and create treatment plans medication.

At Jesmond Health Partnership, our ANPs focus on providing same day appointments for urgent healthcare needs.
