Description of Service
Specialist Practitioners are senior nurses who deliver expert care at the bedside. They have undertaken extra training, e.g. non-medical prescribing and interpretation of x-rays to facilitate seamless patient care.
Whilst you are an inpatient, specialist practitioners working with doctors, nurses and other members of the multidisciplinary team provide care which will help you to make a recovery ready for your discharge.
Once you are ready to be discharged, the Specialist Practitioner team will provide you with contact details should you have any further questions or experience any problems once you are back home.
