Nurse Practitioners

Advanced Nurse Practitioners (ANP) and Advanced Clinical Practitioners (ACP) make an important contribution to the day-to-day running of Farrier House. These members of staff have acquired an expert clinical knowledge base and work alongside the doctors. 

Our ANPs manage the on-the-day triage system which is in place to ensure that patient's medical needs are dealt with most effectively. This is initiated with a telephone call discussion to be able to assess how best to help our patient's as every situation is different.
