Our team of GPs work closely together across our sites to integrate your care whether it is a new health problem or an ongoing condition. We believe in involving our patients in their care & decisions about their health or treatment. We encourage continuity of care by seeing the same Dr or team of Dr’s as far as possible. As well as all taking part in the regular rota, many of the GP’s have additional specialist clinical interests, which are shown for each Dr. A number of us are GP trainers or educators. Some of our Dr team are involved in the Foundry management team which enables us to develop our services to aim to give best clinical care as well as a supportive and fulfilling working environment for our team.
We have a team of experienced Practice nurses, that provide a range of healthcare services to our patients. They manage chronic conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, COPD and anti-coagulation monitoring. They also offer a range of clinics including family planning & sexual health, healthy living advice, child immunistations, cervical smears, wound dressing & care management, and travel immunisations.
We are a training practice so we have Dr’s working with us who are at various stages of their specialist GP training. They are all qualified and experienced Dr’s, and supervised by their GP Trainer. They may occasionally record or video a consultation for their own learning -you will be asked for consent before this happens. We feel that being a training practice is invigorating and encourages us all to stay up to date and reflect on our practice.
We have an excellent paramedic as part of our team who can deal with a lot of medical queries directly and does a number of our home visits, liaising then with your GP.
Our Pharmacy and Medicine Management Team comprised of experienced Clinical Pharmacists and Pharmacy Technicians. They come from varied background of Independent Prescribing, Clinical Pharmacy and Community Pharmacy that enable us to provide extensive range of healthcare services to our patients. They are responsible for management of patient’s long term conditions like hypertension, asthma & COPD, diabetes and so they offer a range of chronic care clinics where they review medications and treatments in line with patient’s clinical conditions and take necessary measures to ensure better patient care. Alongside, they offer the pivotal service of “medicine information and advice”, when an expert opinion is needed relating to a specific patient’s medication.
