As part of our ongoing commitment to providing patients greater access to appointments, from 1 March 2016, Scalloway Health Centre will be offering an Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANP) service.
The ANP will assess all patients who call for an ‘on the day’ appointment. Many minor ailments can be assessed and treated by the ANP which will allow more appointments with the GPs to deal with more complex cases.
When calling for an appointment you will be assessed by the ANP and a suitable appointment given. The ANP will have access to a GP at all times for further advice and patients can be referred on to the GP at any time.
Thank you for your co-operation with this new service.
