All Nurse Practitioners can deal with a wide range of problems including common infections e.g. chest, throat, ear; skin problems, hayfever, thrush and urine infections.
Michelle Horne sees a wide range of patients from 1 years upwards for a variety of healthcare issues. She is experienced in dealing with contraception initiation and review and gynaecological issues and chronic disease management.

Minor Illness appointments are usually available on the day of request. All the ANPs are prescribers so prescriptions will be given as appropriate and should the Advanced Nurse Practitioner feel you need to be seen by a GP she will organise this.
