Winterton Medical Practice

OUR TEAM

TEAMWORK

Winterton Medical Practice is operated by a team of dedicated health professionals, highly trained staff and an experienced management team. Patient care is our focus. In delivering high quality care we work with a multiplicity of other agencies - including hospitals, local authority services and in wider partnersips.

Understanding the needs of our patients and listening to their views is a process that we actively embrace, not just in Patient Group meetings - but in every interaction on a daily basis. We operate in an increasingly technological age with new systems and new ways of working.

Whilst we embrace these changes and improvements, we continue to focus on making sure that we do not lose sight of the importance of people. Our patients are the focus of our attention. To the best of our ability, we are here to provide them with good health care and good service.

We know that sometimes pills and treatments can be required, but we also understand the power of a smile and respect for all!

Featuring Reception

Medical receptionists are important members of our team.  They are often the first point of contact and perform a key role in helping patients obtain the services they need, when they need them.

Innovation - New Role

Over 75's 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 75’s 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 patient’s 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 & Research

We are actively involved in teaching students  from the HullYork Medical School.  This commitment to developing doctors of the future is also seen in our work with the Yokshire & Humber Postgraduate Deanery. The practice takes up to three GP registrars each year. 

HYMS

Working to develop medical students

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.

HEALTH EDUCATION

Health Education England

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.

NATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR HEALTH RESEARCH

Supporting Medical Research

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.

This involves varied research into many areas. We have, in the past, been involved in cough studies and nasal swab studies - all of which can help the future development of treatments.

We would be pleased if patients who are invited to partake in any research consider involvement to aid us in successfully undertaking the research programmes

North Care Network

PCN

We are part of North Care Network. Working at scale in this group of practices, we aim to improve the healthcare of  patients.
