We would like to wish a warm welcome to Gill Thistlewood, who joined the Practice on Monday 30th October as our new Advanced Nurse Practitioner. Gill will be seeing Patients on a full time basis, she can assess and examine you, make a diagnosis and provide advice and treatment including a prescription if required. She can make referrals to hospital doctors or other health care professionals, and admit patients into hospital when necessary. Unfortunately, she is unable legally to sign a sick certificate, so you will need to see your own GP for this.
