Nurse Gill Dennes RGN; MSc; Queen's Nurse (f)

Gill is an Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANP).  ANP's have done additional training to assess, diagnose and prescribe for a number of conditions. Gill can order tests, refer and follow up both urgent and non urgent problems. The Receptionist may offer you an appointment with Gill rather than a GP or please ask if you would prefer this.

Gill specialises in respiratory conditions, diabetes, skin lesions, sexual health (including the fitting of contraceptive implants) and the menopause.
