The Advanced Nure Practitioner

What Is An Advanced Nurse Practitioner?

Advanced Nurse Practitioners are qualified registered nurses who have undertaken specific advanced training to Honours Degree level. The Advanced Nurse Practitioner does not replace your doctor, but works as an additional and complementary service. A nurse practitioner has been available at The Avenue Medical Centre since 2004.

What Do Advanced Nurse Practitioners Provide?

Advanced Nurse Practitioners care for children and adults during ill health and illness alongside the General Practitioner by:

  • Diagnosis and treatment of common health problems such as infections, minor illness and injuries.
  • Diagnosis, treatment and monitoring of chronic diseases such as asthma, diabetes and heart disease.

The Advanced Nurse Practitioner will consult with the doctor where necessary.

Why Choose An Advanced Nurse Practitioner?

Advanced Nurse Practitioners:

  • Provide individualised care, focusing not only on health problems, but the effects problems have on people and their families.
  • Explain the details of health problems, medications and other health topics to help people fully understand how to care for themselves.
  • Ask about people’s worries and concerns about health and their health care needs.
  • Emphasise health and self-care by giving people the information they need to make lifestyle choices and provide care and health promotion.

The Nurses

The nurses are fully trained and are available to be seen by appointment only for dressings, cervical smears, minor injuries, injections, immunisations and blood pressure monitoring. They also run specialised clinics.

Trainee GPs

Dr Neil Coleman conducts the teaching or training of GP registrars at the practice. The practice has made a conscious effort to develop as a training practice and supplies a teaching environment for medical students, doctors taking clinical attachments, pharmacists, pharmacy advisers, nurses and the community matron. Periodically the practice will have trainee GPs, hospital doctors or medical students who may sit in with our doctors. You will be advised about this when you arrive for your appointment. Should you have any objections please inform the receptionist.

The Receptionists

Our receptionists are fully trained and do a very difficult job well. Please remember that if you are kept waiting or they seem to ask one or two irritating questions, they are just carrying out our policy, which aims to ensure the practice runs smoothly.


We have trained chaperones available at the surgery. If you wish to have one present during a consultation please ask a receptionist on arrival.

The Health Visitors

Every family with a child under five has a named health visitor. Health visitors offer support to families from pregnancy and birth to primary school and beyond by providing a core programme of home visits, clinics and group contacts. They work closely with GPs and other professionals who also work with children and their families. Your local health visitors can be contacted on 01753 373464 or 0800 772 3578. Website details The Child Health Clinic where you can weigh your baby and discuss any problems you may have is held every Wednesday from 2.00 - 4.00pm at the Britwell Community Centre on Wentworth Avenue.
