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.

Please read the testimonials from 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-in-Lindrick 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
