Community Matron SHORTCUT

This is a self-referral/self-help advice page for your condition

Your condition is best managed by contacting our community matron


I decided to undertake extra training so I can help patients with more complex problems.

Now I can prescribe medicines, order tests and interpret the results, and work on treatment plans with patients.

I can help a lot more patients, freeing up the doctors to see patients with the most urgent or complicated health issues.


Community matrons are now called 'Enhanced clinical practitioners'.
