NP training covers basic disease prevention, coordination of care, and health promotion, but does not provide the depth of expertise needed to recognize more complex cases in which multiple symptoms suggest more serious conditions.
Please note if the NP feels you need to be seen by a GP urgently you will be fast tracked to the on-call duty doctor.
