There are 16 GPs (four male and 12 female) at the practice, the GP team also included a female GP Registrar. The practice is a training practice for GP Registrars. GP Registrars are qualified doctors who undertake additional training to gain experience and higher qualifications in general practice and family medicine. The GP team is supported by two paramedic practitioners and a clinical pharmacist.
The nursing team consists of five practice nurses and four health care assistants with a mix of skills and experience.
A practice manager, IT manager, finance manager, facilities manager, office manager and a team of administrative staff undertake the day to day management and running of the practice.
Following significant new housing developments in the local area, in the last three years, the number of registered patients has increased by 7%, from 18,535 to 20,050.
The practice population has a proportion of patients in two local nursing homes (approximately 70 registered patients). The practice population includes patients from the boating and canal community based at the nearby marina. There is an arrangement that the practice provides GP services for homeless people who access a local homeless charity. The boating and canal community alongside the homeless community who use the practice increases the practice’s transient patient population who are often outside of area for long periods, this has an impact on screening and recall programmes.
The practice has core opening hours between 8am and 6.30pm every weekday. Extended hours appointments were available between 7.30am and 8am every weekday morning and between 6.30pm and 7.30pm every weekday evening with the exception of Wednesday and Friday evenings when the practice closed at 8pm. Patients at the practice could access improved access appointments at primary care access hubs across Aylesbury and Buckinghamshire. These improved access appointments were booked via the patient’s registered practice and offered a variety of appointments including up until 8pm Monday to Friday, selected hours on Saturdays and 9am until 1pm on Sunday and Bank Holidays.
Out of hours care is accessed by contacting NHS 111.
