Advanced Nurse Practitioner

I am Mark Handyside.  I am an Advanced Nurse Practitioner and have worked within the NHS for 22 years.

I have predominantly worked within the Emergency Department and Walk In Centres throughout  my career.  I only started working in Primary Care and GP surgery 1 year ago however, due to working in ED, I have extensive knowledge and experience  around patient assessment and management of multiple different illnesses and injuries.

I have completed numerous post-graduation courses including those in patient assessment, non medical prescribing and teaching and learning.  This means as part of my current role I am able to fully assess patients with multiple different conditions, refer to appropriate specialists when needed and prescribe the most appropriate medications to manage these conditions.
