You can see an Advanced Clinical Practitioner (ACP) for many minor illnesses and injuries. These are nurses, pharmacists or other healthcare professionals that have undertaken extensive postgraduate training to examine, diagnose and treat a wide range of illnesses, and have the ability to order tests/X-rays, prescribe medication and refer onwards where needed.

The pharmacists are able to review your medication with you to ensure you are taking the right medicines at the right doses for the right conditions. They will identify where things may not be quite right, for example, if there are any clashes between medicines or experiencing side effects, then be able to change your treatment as needed. Medication review appointments can be booked in advance.

Receptionists provide an important link for patients with the practice and are your initial contact point for general enquiries. They can provide basic information on services and results and direct you to the right person depending on your health issue or query. Receptionists make most of the patient appointments with the GPs and nurses. They also perform other important tasks such as issuing repeat prescriptions and dealing with prescription enquiries, dealing with financial claims, dealing with patient records and carrying out searches and practice audits.
