Larwood surgery has a walk-in centre for patients who are registered with us to access when requesting a “same day” appointment. We need a further nurse practitioner to compliment this service. The environment is busy and applicants must be capable of rising to the challenge. The range of conditions presenting varies from minor illness to acute onset, urgent conditions. When not based in the walk-in service you will undertake chronic disease management reviews within the general practice.
The applicant needs to have experience in the management of minor illness/injury. A prescribing qualification is essential. Experience of chronic disease management is also a requirement of this post
We are seeking to appoint someone who will provide and maintain a high standard of nursing care for patients and integrate well with team members.

Read the Testimonials from the Nurse Practitioners currently working within our Surgeries..............
“……….I have been employed by Larwood surgery for nearly four years. The main focus of my role as Lead nurse Practitioner involves supporting the team, Chronic Disease management and “LUCS” (the walk in centre for patients registered at Larwood or any of its others sites).
I have found the role very challenging but rewarding and an excellent learning environment for me as an advanced practitioner. It can be a very busy and demanding practice but I have found there to be excellent support from GP’s with excellent training opportunities to meet my professional learning needs. Everyone is friendly and supportive and I feel a very valued member of the team……” – Michelle Wilson - Lead nurse Practitioner
“………I have been working for the Larwood Group practices for nearly 4 years. Working as a nurse practitioner is demanding but very satisfying.
Within the organisation we are well respected by all colleagues and have a high level of professional autonomy coupled with the reassurance that we have the clinical support of all the GP’s if needed.
Working for Larwood & Village Surgeries has allowed me the opportunity to develop my clinical and decision making skills exponentially in a safe supportive environment and at the same time allowed me the scope to expand my practice in line with the needs of the patient groups.
My days are varied,
· Working alongside GPs in a walk-in service for urgent appointments at Larwood (where we can see literally anything and everything).
· Having a ‘book on the day’ minor illness clinic at Carlton Surgery
· Chronic disease management clinics (in surgery and home visits)
· Medication reviews
· Plus anything additional required by the practice
Part of the enjoyment of the role is you really don’t know what you are going to be presented with next!
I have been a qualified nurse for over 20 years and building on my previous experiences and as an independent prescriber working in this role in this capacity is the pinnacle of my career………..” - Richard Meades - Nurse Practitioner
“………I work as a part time nurse Practitioner at Larwood Surgery and in Barnsley.
Originally coming from a critical care background, I have spent the last eight years in a GP practice. I initially worked as a practice nurse and have an interest in diabetes, asthma and COPD. Two years ago I became a prescriber and my role developed to include a more acute, minor illness role. I completed a Masters course in minor illness 18 months ago and now enjoy caring for both chronic as well as acute conditions.
I feel that my, and the other nurse Practitioners, background in both chronic and acute conditions allows us to offer an exemplary standard of care with the Larwood Urgent Care Service (LUCS) and in the surgery as a whole.
Colleagues are supportive and friendly. Patients often praise the care they are given, and comment on the quality of care they receive. Although occasionally there may be a longer wait, generally patients are seen within 20-30 minutes, making it a faster and more efficient way for patients with urgent /same day problems to access health care…….”- Kim Claydon Nurse Practitioner
