Nurse Practitioners

Advanced Nurse Practitioner

Mrs Sharon Kinniburgh

Advanced Nurse Practitioners (ANPs) are experienced specialist nurses.  They have undertaken advanced training which enables them to examine, diagnose and treat a variety of minor illnesses and conditions.  ANPs are not a replacement for the General Practitioner (GP).  They have access to GPs if required, and you may be directed to see another clinician if not appropriate.

Sharon is a fully qualified registered nurse at Masters Degree Level, with many years' nursing experience.  She has a very specialist role, providing an additional resource in supporting patient centred care. 


Practice Nurses

Mr Mike Brown

Mrs Kerry Thomson

Practice nurses are qualified and registered nurses. They can help with health issues such as family planning, healthy living advice, blood pressure checks and dressings. The practice nurses run clinics for long-term health conditions such as asthma or diabetes, minor ailment clinics and carry out cervical smears.

Healthcare Assistants

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.
