Advanced Nurse Practitioner
Mr 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 in to 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 2000 moved to Somerset and worked in Paediatric A&E at the Childrens Hospital before settling for the more quiet life, moving to work at local Minor Injury Units in Mendip.
I come to Temple House after spending 12 Years working as a front line clinician for South Western 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 break neck speed.
I have 2 daughters, one of whom will be attending Midsomer Norton 6th form next academic year and a second who will be in year 9. I still do the occasional shift for the Ambulance Service and will be returning to the role of Community Staff Responder in the summer.
