Trent Meadows Medical Practice
The surgeries cover two defined localities which serve in excess of 11,700 patients. Our current clinical team is made up of 7 GPs, 5 of whom are part time, a very able and qualified Nurse Practitioner, 3 Nurses and 1 Health Care Assistant. In addition to which we have a Practice Manager, a Medical Secretarial team, a friendly and very capable receptionist team and administrative support throughout the practice at every level.
Our aim is to provide all our patients with a friendly, professional service where they and their families can expect a prompt and understanding approach, complete confidence and assistance with their needs. To be able to do this all our staff have been trained to ask specific questions so they can direct you to the appropriate clinician in a manner which best suit your needs.
We operate a full practice service, running specialist clinics for many patient needs e,g. pregnant women, childhood immunisation programmes, smoking cessation, minor injuries etc and under the General Medical Services Contract, we aim to see all our patients suffering from long term conditions at least once a year for a full check up and review.
Are you 13 - 16, or do you have children who are this age?
The practice will now ask your child for their consent to share their medical record with parents/guardians, including test results such as blood tests or X-rays.
During the course of any consultation, the GP/Nurse will assess anyone between 13 and 16 to ensure they are capable of either giving or declining consent. It will be recorded in the records of the patient. This is ONLY valid for that consultation and they will be asked each time they visit.
