Care Navigation

You may have noticed that we now ask for a brief outline of your problem when you call to make an appointment at the practice. This isn’t because our reception staff are nosy but it’s a new approach that we call care navigation.

Through specialist training, our team can now offer more choice on who to see in the practice and help you get to the right health professional fast. Our receptionists never offer clinical advice or triage; this is about offering you the choice to see other specialists in our practice team if they have the expertise to deal with your problem; often quicker and without the need to see the GP each time.

By working this way, it helps us to free up time for GPs to care for our patients with complex or serious health conditions. More importantly though, it means you are seen by the clinician that is best placed to deal with your problem each time you visit us. The choice is up to you.

Due to a shortage of GP's, we have temporarily capped our lists and are currently not accepting new registrations. Click here to see how you can help our receptionists deal with your request in the most appropriate way.

Training Practice

glasses_and_penThis Practice has been accredited to train doctors intending to become general practitioners.

The practice needs to be regularly inspected for this purpose, and this involves inspection of the medical records.  Only doctors approved for this purpose will do this, and they will respect completely the confidentiality of the information.

Patient records may only be disclosed with written permission.  Patients may therefore be asked to sign a letter of authorisation to permit this.  No patient records will be included in the inspection visit without such authorisation.

Sometimes the doctor may wish to video record their consultations, and in this case once again your permission will always be requested beforehand.

As this Partnership is a Training Practice you may be asked to see a doctor who is taking part in a Vocational Training Programme.  We also have medical students who see patients, with a partner assessing the consultation.  Your co-operation will be both valuable and appreciated.
