All our doctors are included in the Obstetric List, Minor Surgery and Child Health Surveillance List of the Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire Area Team of NHS England.
All of the doctors have specialised interests, which allow for further high quality care of our patients. Dr Pound has a specialist interest in diabetes & prescribing, Dr Das - family planning, women's health and substance misuse, Dr Pountney and Dr Aldread - joint injections and minor surgery and Dr Laird - dermatology.
Dr Pound also supervises Foundation Year 2 doctors within the practice (doctors who have qualified but have yet to specialise) whilst Drs Pountney and Aldread are both Trainers for GP Registrars in the practice (fully trained doctors doing specialist GP training), both with the support of the wider practice team.
We are a member practice of the Mansfield and Ashfield Clinical Commissioning Group (MACCG) which is divided into smaller groups of federated practices who work together on improving services to patients within the NHS budgets.
Our Federated Group is Ashfield North, made up of the Brierley Park, Harwood Close, Skegby Family Medical Centre, Willowbrook (incorporating Ashfield Medical Centre), and Woodlands practices.
Assistant Practice Manager
Our administration and clerical team includes 6 front line receptionists and 5 administrators, a secretary, practice manager and assistant practice manager. The admin team works to support the clinical team, undertaking tasks such as nurse admin support; ensuring patients are invited for the appropriate health checks and reviews; summarising and updating patient computer records; processing repeat prescription requests; and advising and supporting patients as they book hospital appointments through the 'Choose & Book' facility.
We work closely with other healthcare professionals such as District Nurses, Health Visitors and Midwives, who are not directly employed by the practice, but who work as part of the practice team delivering services to our patients.
You can contact the midwife through reception - please be aware that the midwife is not at the surgery every day. If you need advice or support, you can contact the Community Midwives Advice Line, which is open 9.30am-4.30pm Monday-Friday, on 01623 676170.
If you have an illness or incapacity that means that you need nursing care in your own home, your GP will refer you to the District Nurses. Patients who are likely to benefit from this service include the housebound, the elderly, people with a terminal illness, and those who have recently been discharged from hospital. District nurses provide wound care, palliative care, continence advice, health promotion advice and advice on co-ordinating care packages. The District Nurses can be contacted through the Single Point of Access (SPA) number 0300 4564951.
We also have access to specialised services within the community including physiotherapy and counselling services.
