What is a Nurse Practioner and how can they help?

Nurse Practitioners can help diagnose, treat and educate patients on various minor illnesses. They are registered nurses who have received specialised training in order to help patients with minor ailments. Nurse Practitioners can prescribe as well. 

When Should You go to a GP?

When a Nurse Practitioner can’t help you, you need to see a GP that can diagnose and offer the right treatment that you need. We advise patients to see a GP when they:

-Need wound and dressing care;
-Experience muscle and joint injuries;
-Lacerations and cuts;
-Infected wounds

At Midland Health, our expert GPs and nurses can offer the right advice and support. Don't hesitate to contact us today and discuss how we can best help you. Whether you want to visit our Minor Illness Clinic or what to see a GP, we are here to help you.
