GP vs ADVANCE CLINICAL PRACTITIONERS
Clinical practitioners are the providers of choice for thousands of patients within NHS. Clinical practitioners evaluate patients, diagnose, write prescriptions and bring a comprehensive perspective to the Phoenix Family Care.
Clinical Practitioners have 6 + years of academic and clinical preparation
Advance Clinical Practitioners make an important contribution to the NHS and the role has been successfully introduced in many different settings. They are not only able to substitute for doctors, which is highly relevant in view of the growing shortage of GPs, but in doing so they often enable a patient to get the care they require more quickly, because the need to refer on to a doctor, and the associated delay, is negated.
