Advanced Nurse Practitioner - NG PCN Team Lead
I’m Louise McPhee, and I joined North Gosforth PCN as Advanced Nurse Practitioner / NG PCN Team Lead in March 2022.
I completed my degree in Adult Nursing 2010 in Scotland. I have undertaken Advanced Clinical skills at Northumbria University and I am an independent prescriber. I will be working towards MSc in Advanced Clinical Practice within Primary Care.

Our home visit team provides same-day assessment for patients that are unable to attend the surgery on medical, psychological or frailty grounds and require assessment of acute symptoms.
At Broadway Medical Centre, our enhanced access clinic provides same-day assessments for all adults and children presenting with acute and chronic illnesses.
