Advanced Nurse Practitioners

Tracy Bennett

Clinical Lead for Staveley and Inkersall

Safeguarding Lead for Staveley

I trained in Sheffield and started my career specialising in Cardiology and A&E. I pursued a career in Advanced Practice initiating a new service within Sheffield Teaching Hospitals known as Hospital at Night, covering acute medicine and surgical specialities.
I left secondary care to commence a new career in Primary care and began working for RPC in 2017, where I happily worked for a year as a locum ANP, I was then lucky enough to be asked to join the team on a permanent basis earlier this year which I happily accepted.
I will shortly be taking the minor surgery course, which I have a special interest in and I am currently joint lead for safeguarding in the Staveley area

I am currently practicing as a Nurse Practitioner while studying at the University of Derby for a Masters in Advanced Clinical Practice. I qualified as a nurse in 2011 and began my nursing career in secondary care on an acute medical ward, specialising in respiratory medicine. After three and a half years, I was ready for a new challenge and made the move into Primary care to work as a Practice nurse and attended DeMontfort University to study for a degree in Practice nursing. In 2016 I began the three year course at the University of Derby and have completed three modules at master’s level.


My interests are respiratory medicine and skin conditions.

Commuity matron/ANP/Clinical site lead NW.

I started working in the NHS in 1994 as an Auxiliary nurse at the Northern General Hospital Sheffield. I then went on to do my Nurse training (adult) at Sheffield University. I have worked in Respiratory medicine in Sheffield and then as a Community Staff Nurse in Chesterfield. I then had the opportunity to become a Community Matron in Chesterfield for Chesterfield Medical Partnership. I completed Modules at master’s level to become an Advanced Nurse practitioner with the support and encouragement of the partners. I have worked in this role for 6 years. This has seen me develop; my main interests are palliative care, care of the elderly and frailty in the community. However, I see a mixture of acute conditions in a clinic. I also provide care and support to the nursing homes we have linked with the surgery one of these being for learning disabilities. Since merging with Royal primary Care I have become the clinical site lead for the North West bases (Ashgate, Whittington and Holmehall). I work 5 days a week, one of these being non-clinical.
