ROSIE JONES

R.G.N, MSc in Advanced Nursing Practice

Rosie is a Nurse Partner within the Practice. She qualified in 1989 and specialised in cardiac and intensive care nursing. After qualifying Rosie and her husband Phil moved to Hereford where she worked at the County Hospital on the Cardiac and Intensive Care Unit, and later established a cardiac rehabilitation service for Herefordshire. After the birth of their first child they returned to Lichfield, and have since had a second child. Rosie began working in General Practice as a Practice Nurse in 1992, and is now one of a very small number of Nurse Partners in the country. She continues to have a keen interest in coronary heart disease, and lectures on nursing courses addressing the management and prevention of coronary heart disease. She completed a Master of Science degree in July 2006, in Advanced Nursing Practice, specialising in Primary Care and has also qualified as an independent and supplementary extended nurse prescriber. Rosie is a founder member of the national Nurse Partner group and regularly speaks at conferences on this subject. In her spare time she enjoys being with her family and friends.

Nurse Practitioners

Advanced Nurse Practitioners all have a Masters degree in Advanced Nursing Practice. They undertake many of the tasks traditionally handled by doctors, including diagnosis, writing prescriptions, arranging tests, and referral. They are part of our same day team appointment system. Patients can book appointments with nurses as well as with doctors. They give valued assistance to the doctors by seeing patients and prescribing medication where necessary.
