Jane Strong is an Advanced Nurse Practitioner.
An Advanced Nurse Practitioner is qualified to treat medical conditions without the direct supervision of a doctor. Advanced Nurse Practitioners are able to prescribe as well as manage patient treatments, request tests and investigations. Jane's role is to see 'new' illnesses. This includes, tonsillitis, earache, tummy pain, urine infections, chest infections, insect bites and skin issues. The role of the Advanced Nurse Practitioner has been in existence for some years now and is a response to the National GP shortage; its was devised to allow the GP's time to deal with complex healthcare needs whilst not compromising patient care. This role is not to replace that of a GP only to enhance it.
