Nurse Practitioner

Nurse Practitioner

A Nurse Practitioner (NP) is a Registered Nurse with the experience and expertise to diagnose and treat people of all ages with a variety of acute or chronic health conditions. NPs have completed additional university study at Master’s degree level and are the most senior clinical nurses in our health care system. The title “Nurse Practitioner” can only be used by a person who has been endorsed by the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia.

National standards for practice ensure that Nurse Practitioners are capable of providing high quality, patient centred care. They are also capable in clinical research, education and leadership as applied to clinical care and health service development.

Nurse Practitioners work as key members of the healthcare team and collaborate with other nurses and healthcare professionals including your GP, medical and surgical specialists, physiotherapists, dietitians, occupational therapists, social workers, and many others.

Coronavirus Health Alert

Due to the increased risk of COVID-19 in South Australia, our doctors are delivering consults predominantly via telephone or video telehealth. A large proportion of routine medical care can safely be performed over telehealth.

A telephone consult with a doctor can be booked through our website.

If your problem requires an examination, a safe face-to-face appointment will be scheduled.

If you have symptoms of cough, fever, sore throat, shortness of breath or a loss of sense of smell or taste, then a COVID-19 test is necessary. Please refer to the SA Health website for a list of COVID-19 clinics and testing centres. If you are uncertain, please book a telephone consult with your GP who will discuss and arrange this.
