Advanced Nurse Practitioner
Peter Winterbottom – Advanced Nurse Practitioner
BSc (Hon) CHN BSc (Hon) NP Dip (HE) SCN RGN RSCN ENP INMSP MFEN
I qualified in 1991 in General Nursing at Guys Hospital in London, after a short career in H M Forces. In 1996, I successfully extend my qualification into Sick Children’s Nursing, staffing at the Royal Liverpool Children’s Hospital, Alder Hey before returning and taking up post at Chelsea and Westminster in 1996. In 2000 I moved to Somerset and worked in Paediatric A&E at the Children’s Hospital, Bristol, before settling for the quieter life, moving to work at local Minor Injury Units in Wells and Glastonbury.
I come to Temple House after spending 16 Years working as a front-line Specialist Clinician for Southwestern Ambulance Service, based out of Shepton Mallet, doing the job that I am currently employed for here at the surgery, but not having to drive between patients at breakneck speed. As part of my current contract, I still do the occasional shift for the Ambulance Service whilst also responding from home as part of my role of Community Staff Responder and Liaison Officer.
I have 2 daughters, one of who is currently in her second year studying Criminology at Exeter University and my other daughter who is currently studying Media Hair and Make Design/Prosthetics and Special Effects Make up at City of Bristol.
