Nurse Practitioners

Gillian Hewitson

Gill is a Nurse practitioner and Independent prescriber

She provides independent clinical sessions alongside the GPs. Nurse Practitioners can do most things a GP can i.e., diagnose, arrange diagnostics, refer and prescribe so please make appointments with her if you wish. 

Gill also works out of hours for Cumbria Health on Call, so if you have been unfortunate enough to need services over the weekend or in the evening, you might just find Gill catching up with you during the week.  Like Barbara, Gill is an independant prescriber and concentrates on minor illness within the practice.
