Wingerworth Surgery is based in the heart of Wingerworth, Chesterfield and serves 4,500 patients. The practice has a small branch surgery in North Wingfield although currently registrars work only at our main site. We have 5 permanent GPs, two are Trainers (one is also a Programme Director and Associate Dean) and one has completed the Clinical Supervisor course and is qualified to perform assessments and debriefs with our Registrars.
The Practice has full Primary Health Care Team (Practice Nurses, Health Care Assistant and Phlebotomist, Pharmacist, Care Coordinator). Working very closely with the practice staff are the community staff, including District Nurses, Health Visitors and Midwife.
Practice is supported by our experienced team of administrative and reception staff.
The clinical team meet every Friday lunchtime for an in house “learning lunch” and we try to ensure education and good quality care go hand in hand in everything that we do.
As a team we like to put patients at the heart of what we do but also maintain a good work life balance because we know healthy, happy doctors make much more effective clinicians.
We offer an educational experience witch is tailored individually for each and every Registrar. We currently have one GPR at a time but following move to our new premises, early 2017 we will have 2 GPRs at a time. Registrars get at least a daily debrief, regular tutorials and time set aside for joint surgeries and video consulting.
Practice population is generally affluent, well-educated and receptive to preventative medicine and as a result, practice consistently achieves all targets. However, because patients are well educated, this does at times create high demand on our services.
It also means that by practising effectively, good quality consulting skills become second nature to all our GPs. We have a lot of elderly patients with complex medical needs and encourage GPRs to become involved with Community Support Team and virtual ward.
We also have a lot of young families and we feel there is a good mix of cases for GPRs to see.
