Donneybrook Medical Centre is located at Clarendon Street, Hyde, Cheshire SK14 2AH. The surgery is located in Hyde town centre and has good transport links and there is a pharmacy located nearby.
The provider is registered with CQC to deliver the Regulated Activities; diagnostic and screening procedures, maternity and midwifery services, surgical procedures and treatment of disease disorder or injury.
Donneybrook Medical Centre is situated within the Tameside and Glossop Commissioning Group (CCG) and provides services to 9300 patients under the terms of a general medical services (GMS) contract. This is a contract between general practices and NHS England for delivering services to the local community.
The provider was registered with the CQC in April 2013. Since our last inspection in January 2016 the practice has seen a change in the partnership with three of the GP partners leaving the practice. During a transitional period and the practice recruiting a new permanent clinical team the practice relied on locum GPs. There are now two GP partners (male) and three salaried GPs (two female). The practice also employs an advanced nurse practitioner, three practice nurses an assistant practitioner, a health care assistant and phlebotomist. The practice is supported by a full-time practice manager, reception manager, deputy practice manager and a team of administration/reception staff.
The age profile of the practice population is broadly in line with the CCG averages. There is a higher percentage of people living with long term conditions, with 63.5% compared to 51% in England. The National General Practice Profile states that 87% of the practice population is from a white British background, 11% from an Asian background. Data provided by the practice showed approximately 22% of patients were from a Bangladeshi background.
Information published by Public Health England, rates the level of deprivation within the practice population group as three, on a scale of one to ten. Level one represents the highest levels of deprivation and level ten the lowest. Male life expectancy is 76 years which is below the national average of 79 years, but in line with local CCG average. Female life expectancy is 81 years which is below the national average 83 years, but in line with local CCG average.
