Practice profile:

Avenue House and Hasland Partnership is based in central Chesterfield and serves 13,500 patients. We have 6 GP partners (2 of whom are trainers) and currently employ 3 salaried GPs.

The partnership has two sites although GP registrars are currently based in the town centre at Avenue House Surgery. We also offer placements for third year medical students from Sheffield Medical School.

The Practice strives to be progressive and innovative, whilst maintaining the core ethos of continuity of care and family care. We like to offer a supportive environment for learning and pride ourselves on a ‘practice wide’ approach to training within a positive and friendly atmosphere. Our registrars tell us that they feel well supported with easy access to their trainers. We hold daily ‘debrief’ sessions and weekly tutorials, tailored to individual needs.

The Practice has an excellent Primary Health Care Team including Nurse Practitioners, Practice Nurses, Health Care Assistants and an in house Phlebotomist. Working very closely with the practice staff, are the community staff, including District Nurses, Health Visitors and Midwife. The Practice is supported by our experienced team of administrative and reception staff. The team meets as regularly as possible and has a proactive approach to improving patient care.

In addition to a range of GP appointments being offered (pre-bookable and book on the day), we also offer Nurse Practitioner appointments plus a range of chronic disease management clinics, run largely by the nursing team. We have access to welfare rights advice, citizens’ advice and counselling services.

Our Practice is a high achiever in the Quality and Outcomes Framework and also achieves well under patient access/appointment targets and in patient questionnaires.

The Practice offers extended hours to patients, as well as participating in a range of clinical enhanced services. We take an active role in Practice Based Commissioning and are members of the Chesterfield Consortium of local practices.

HISTORY, DEVELOPMENT AND IDENTITY OF THE PRACTICE

The practice first opened its doors on 1st June 1984 as a single handed-practice with a list size of nearly 1500. It has developed and continued to grow and is currently responsible for the health care of just under 3000 patients and is accountable to Derbyshire County PCT. The practice is a PMS practice and prides itself in being at the forefront of service development and delivery.

There are currently three practices in Bolsover serving an estimated population of 16,000.

The practice essentially serves Bolsover and surrounding local villages of Carr Vale, Duckmanton, Hillstown, Palterton and Scarcliffe.

Practice has a high proportion of elderly with patients in three nursing homes and one residential home.

The practice also has sole care of service uses in the local ABI (acquired brain injury) unit who cater for approximately twelve residents.

Bolsover is proud of its castle standing at the top of the hill, on main road into Bolsover from Chesterfield (A632). It has developed into a bustling, historic market town, easily accessed from M1 motorway junctions 29 & 29A.

The Peak District National Park, Chatsworth House and other places of interest are ten to fifteen miles west of Bolsover.

Bolsover is a former mining village, suffering higher than desirable unemployment levels. There are health consequences for ex-miners, mainly in the form of breathing difficulties plus musculoskeletal problems in later life. A Chemical Refinery in use until 2004, impacted on patients’ health in the form of breathing issues.

Bolsover has its fair share of problems related to socio-economic circumstance, among them drugs, anti-social behaviour and alcohol abuse.

The practice does no outside private work.

PRACTICE PREMISES

Practice operates from single storey premises, purpose built in 1987 with extensions added 1994 and 2013 to allow additional in-house services proposed at the time. Practice is currently being further extended to accommodate two extra consulting rooms. Castle Street practice occupies the site of a former Presbyterian chapel and is built from it’s original stone. One half of ground to front and side is still consecrated land.

PRACTICE STAFF

The practice has a full complement of staff, including Practice Nurse and Health Care Assistant.

Practice Manager is Mrs Karen Bestwick.

ATTACHED STAFF

District Nursing Staff based at Bolsover Clinic are shared with one of two other practices in Bolsover.

Practice also shares a Midwife. A Health Visitor is solely attached to the practice. Phlebotomists are based at Bolsover Clinic and work for all three of the Bolsover practices. Community Matron is shared with the third practice.

CLINICS / IN HOUSE SERVICES

The practice offers many clinics and services for population it serves. It prides itself on offering in-house physiotherapy, counselling, welfare rights advice, debt counselling and dietetic services.

COMPUTER SYSTEM

We have a wide clinical team including 4 Nurse Practitioners, 1 Pharmacist, 1 Paramedic, 5 Practice Nurses, 2 HCA’s and 1 Phlebotomist.

We work across 3 surgeries; the sites are Ashgate Medical Practice, Whittington Medical Centre and Holme Hall Surgery. Registrars will be allocated to our main purpose built site- Ashgate Medical Practice for their training.

We care for the residents of two local nursing homes which a GP will visit bi-weekly. One of our Nurse Practitioners is community based and see’s patients for preventative care, which we have found to be very effective in reducing emergency care.

High priority is placed on excellent clinical care and we always strive for 100% Quality Outcomes Framework achievement by the whole team.

We hold various regular meetings:
Nurse team meetings and clinical meetings bi-weekly
Monthly full team QUEST half day training. We get the opportunity to discuss practice issues, host outside speakers, run in-house teaching and present recent audits.
We also meet for coffee each morning between 11 and 11.30

We operate an extended hour’s surgery Tuesdays 18:30-20:30 and Thursdays 07:00-08:00. We have an Oncall clinic every day to assess the urgent appointment and visit requests.

We have electronic prescribing (EPS), online appointment booking and online access to medical records.

Dronfield Medical Practice

Address:

Dronfield Medical Centre
High Street
Dronfield
Derbyshire
S18 1PY

01246 412242

Trainers:

Dr Andrew Barr
Dr Sarah Leckenby

Practice profile:

We are an enthusiastic and friendly training practice made up of 3 Partners and 4 Salaried Doctors. All have an ethos of providing high quality personal medical care to the patients but at the same time value our own quality of life.

The practice is based in a new purpose built medical centre opened in June 2008, situated in the centre of the small town of Dronfield on the edge of the Peak District. Dronfield is predominantly middle class and serves as dormitory town primarily to Sheffield and Chesterfield.

The practice population is generally mobile, well educated and receptive to preventative medicine, as a result the practice consistently achieves all targets. However, because the patients are so well informed this does create a high demand on our services. The practice population is relatively stable, at just over 9800, but we do have a fairly rapid turnover of young families who move in and out of the area as employment dictates. However, recently we have noted an increase in our elderly population and the number of retired families.
