Nurse Practitioner

A Nurse Practitioner is located at our Deer Park campus to provide additional care to the GP service.

Nurse Practitioner and your Doctor

Nurse Practitioners diagnose and manage patients and also have a shared care agreement with your Doctor / GP.

This means Nurse Practitioners may do certain medical tasks that may be later followed up with your Doctor.

What can Nurse Practitioners do?

– See new and current patients
– Provide vaccines, medical and carer certificates
– Treat minor illness and injury, chronic disease
– Stabilise acutely ill patients
– Order and interpret pathology and radiography, ultrasound and CT scan
– Refer to medical specialists, other health professionals and hospitals
