Our Advanced Nurse Practitioners
Within our Practice, Advanced Nurse Practitioners (ANP) are integral in delivering a high quality service to our patients.
ANP’s are educated at Masters Level in advanced practice. As clinical leaders supporting our GP’s they have the freedom and authority to act and accept responsibility and accountability for these actions.
ANPs can manage patients who present with a broad range of symptoms. Their core clinical competencies are to:
- Take a comprehensive history
- Perform clinical assessment (a physical clinical examination)
- Formulate differential diagnoses
- Request, interpret and act on diagnostic tests and investigations
- Formulate an action plan for the treatment of the patient, including prescribing medication
- Admit, discharge or refer a patient dependant on patient need at the time of review.

Our Pharmacy Team
The Pharmacy team at Cromwell Harbour Medical Practice comprises of one pharmacist and 2 pharmacy technicians. We work closely with the Doctors and other members of the multidisciplinary team to address medicine adherence, help in the management and review of patients on longer term or complicated medication regimes. We deal with medication changes following hospital discharges and are a point of contact for any medication related queries. Our aim is to free up doctors and other clinicians so they can see the patients who need them the most. We try and ensure that wherever possible we adhere to the Lothian Joint Formulary which promotes safe, effective and economic prescribing in general practice
