Advanced Nurse Practitioner
Rutherford road are pleased to announce that we have employed an advanced nurse practitioner (ANP) Lianna Hartley.
ANPS can examine, diagnose, order tests, prescribe medicines and refer patients as required. They are highly qualified and experienced clinicians with a nursing background and are accomplished in advanced practice both clinically and academically. Increasingly, ANPs have become an integral addition to our modern ever changing health service both in primary and secondary care, over the last twenty years in the UK. Well documented evidence reveals that ANPs have proven to be highly effective in delivering safe and competent medical care and have been well received by patients.
We welcome her to Our practice and look forward to having her as part of our team.

Rutherford Medical Centre is a training and teaching practice. Fully qualified doctors including GP Registrars and Foundation Year 2 Doctors are attached to the practice for 4 to 12 months to gain valuable experience in general practice.
Registrars have a great deal of hospital experience and bring new ideas and enthusiasm to the care we provide. They are under the supervision of the partners at all times.
We have medical students from Liverpool University Medical School attached to our practice for short periods. They learn about general practice through observing consultations, taking histories and examining patients under the supervision of the practice doctors.
We are grateful to our patients who agree to be seen by the students, as they are helping to shape the doctors of the future.
