Nursing Team

The role of the Nurse Practitioner is one in which the clinician makes professionally autonomous decisions for which they are accountable.  In the role they screen patients for disease risk factors and early signs of illness.  The Nurse Practitioner can order investigations and prescribe medication when necessary.  Our Nurse Practitioners work collaboratively with the Doctors and Nursing team to provide the best health care possible for our patients.


Mrs Laura Richards (f)

Advanced Nurse Practitioner

My initial training was completed at the University of Nottingham where I gained a BSC (HONS) Diploma in Nursing. Since qualifying I have completed Essential Principles in Palliative and End of Life Care at the University of Lincoln, Non-Medical Prescribing and Physical Assessment and Clinical Reasoning at the University of the West of England.

I have been working in Primary care since I qualified in 2009. I started my career working as a Community Nurse in Lincolnshire and later in Gloucestershire.

After six years of working in the community I began working within a GP surgery in Cheltenham as a Practice Nurse. My role quickly developed into telephone triage and seeing patients with minor illness complaints. I completed my Non-Medical Prescribing in 2019 and have been working as a Nurse Practitioner since.

On my days off I love spending time with family and friends, often going for walks in the lovely countryside that Lincolnshire has to offer, usually with a takeaway coffee in my hand!!
