ASSISTANT PRACTICE MANAGER
At Winterton Medical Practice, our team of doctors, nurses and staff form part of an NHS system that embraces hospitals and a wide range of other local, regional and national health services.
All of us that work in the NHS are firmly committed to patient care and the delivery of great services.
Our practice team is carefully selected and trained to perform their individual roles to the highest standards.
We listen carefully to what patients say to us on a day to day basis and we also regularly engage with the Patient Representative Group as a means of understanding patient views.
We hope that all our patients feel part of our plans to improve services. It is open for any patient to provide feedback and opinions on how the practice may improve and develop.
NEW ROLE AT THE PRACTICE
OVER 75íS CO-ORDINATOR
Who is undertaking this Role?
Paula Hurton - Health Care Assistant has been appointed to undertake this role for an initial pilot period of 12 months.
Why are we piloting this Role?
Loneliness and isolation factor hugely in the health and wellbeing of people in this age category. Social prescribing and sign posting are fast becoming essential tools in combating the potentially devastating effects that can result from loneliness and isolation.
The introduction of over 75ís coordination at practices has seen the beginnings of a safety net forming for the most vulnerable patients. Effective liaison between patients, their families, other NHS departments, and external services, ensure that patientís feel supported when they need it.
Working closely with the Social Services link worker, will give great insight into service availability in the area, pathway information, and will aid in bridging the gap that can sometimes form between health and social care organisations.
Building a relationship of trust with patients, taking time to explain services and educating patients will be fundamental in securing uptake of referrals to services that are directed at a more preventative outcome, for example referrals to the falls prevention service could enhance and extend a patients mobility and independence.
Referrals to the Wellbeing Hub will be encouraged to improve patients overall health and wellbeing. The hubs can offer support and encouragement to patients to help improve socialisation that prevents loneliness and isolation.
If you would like more information or would like referring to this service then please contact reception and ask to be referred to Paula Hurton Care Co-ordinator.
Teaching and Research at Winterton Medical Practice
The practice believes that clinical research is important for the future of health services and as such, is actively involved in the National Health Research Strategy. We are currently undertaking the National Institute for Health research Scheme for 2011/2012. This involves varied research into many areas. We have recently been involved in cough studies and nasal swab studies - all of which can help the future development of treatments. We would be please if patients who are invited to partake in any research consider involvement to aid us in successfully undertaking the research programme in 2011/2012
The practice also works with the Yorkshire and the Humber Postgraduate Deanery and annually takes up to 3 GP Registrars who are posted to GP practices as part of their on-going GP training and development. The GP partners teach, debrief and mentor the registrars before and after their clincal sessions. It may be that from time to time patients are asked if they don't mind being video'd in order for the training Gps to assess the registrar's learning and consulting technique. We are grateful for the support of patients who are involved in these training consultations and welcome other patients who may wish to become involved.
Winterton Medical Practice works closely with Hull & York Medical School for the training of medical students. The practice mentors 3rd, 4th and 5th year students. Patients may be asked if students can sit in on GP appointments as part of their learning. The practice very much appreciates the support of patients in these cases. Occasionally, patients are asked to attend for consultations with the students as part of their development. These are performed with the full support of one of the GP partners who oversee the students and patients in these consultations.
