AMENDMENTS and REVIEWS
The district nurse who led the local team that cover this practice and another practice in Clay Cross has left in August for pastures new. There has been a recruitment drive and her replacement was put into post October, buthasr the area teams are being re arranged to make sure all areas are fully covered as much as possible while further recruitment goes on.
As some of you may be aware our GP Dr S Montague has also left for pastures new. Dr Montague will still continue to work in the area in the community and we know she will be greatly missed by all her colleagues and patients. We wish her well in her new job.
We have managed to recruit Dr Nawaz to replace Dr Montague for the forseable future., and is a welcome addition to our team.
We cater for 5,700 patients at the moment, with plans and capacity in place to increase this number as the multi-million regeneration in the area gets under way.
After recent consultation with our patients through our ‘Patient Participation Group’, which is open to all patients, we have listened to the comments made and are implementing a lot of change to meet the needs of our patient in a better more accessible way. As well as future proofing the facility to meet the growing needs of residents in the area, we have facilities on site to develop as a training practice, where we can improve our skills so that future generations can continue to benefit from our medical expertise.
We have introduced new staff to enable patients to have access to a service where they can have 24hr blood pressure checks, and have simple electrocardiogram tests (ECG), which record any unnatural rhythms in the heart. Both have the potential to save hundreds of patients a trip to the hospital and anxious waits for specialist appointments about heart health.
We are also in the early stages of upgrading our branch sites at Tupton and Wingerworth, in order to improve the services at these sites.
