Advanced Nurse Practitioner
I’m Alison Raistrick one of your Advanced Nurse Practitioners.
For the last 35 years I have enjoyed working for the NHS in a variety of roles both in GP Practices and hospital settings. This has enabled me to gain experience and training in specialities such as Intensive Care, Diabetes Nursing, Walk In Centres, Primary Care, Midwifery and Screening Services.
My role within the surgery includes assessment of a patient’s health needs, initiating treatment where required e.g. prescribing medication, arranging investigative procedures such as X-Rays, Ultrasound Scans, blood tests. I can also refer patients for further management e.g. to secondary care when required.
