Nurse practitioners can support patients with long term conditions and often provide the first point of contact for patients, particularly those with minor illnesses. They have been trained to be able to provide aspects of care previously carried out by GPs.

They are able to:

  • take a full patient history
  • carry out any physical examinations
  • use their knowledge to identify a likely diagnosis
  • request appropriate tests to aid diagnosis (blood tests, x-rays, scans)
  • refer patients to an appropriate specialist (in the practice or hospital)
  • prescribe medicines and non-medical treatments
  • arrange follow up and ongoing management

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 people with long-term health conditions such as asthma or diabetes, INR* clinics and carry out cervical smears.

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.


Phlebotomists take blood samples which are sent away for analysis.
