What can Nurse Prescribers do for you:
- Registered nurse prescribers in primary health and specialty teams are designated to prescribe from a schedule of common medicines for common and long-term conditions.
- The list of medicines that registered nurse prescribers may prescribe is specified by the Director-General of Health under the Medicines Act 1981. They will ask a nurse practitioner or doctor if a medication required is not on their list.
- Our Nurse Prescribers work within a collaborative team with your GP's and other health care professionals. They are part of our clinical care team, with longer appointment times given and charged as per GP consultation.
- They can review and repeat prescriptions, during or at the start of your treatments. They can aid you with health education, and support their practice with a detailed background often in long-term conditions nurses. This can include diabetes and related conditions, hypertension, respiratory diseases including asthma and COPD, anxiety, depression, heart failure, gout, contraception, common skin conditions and infections.
- They are unable to complete WINZ, ACC, Drivers Licence and other medical documentation.
