Practice profile:

Avenue House and Hasland Partnership is based in central Chesterfield and serves 13,500 patients. We have 6 GP partners (2 of whom are trainers) and currently employ 3 salaried GPs.

The partnership has two sites although GP registrars are currently based in the town centre at Avenue House Surgery. We also offer placements for third year medical students from Sheffield Medical School.

The Practice strives to be progressive and innovative, whilst maintaining the core ethos of continuity of care and family care. We like to offer a supportive environment for learning and pride ourselves on a ‘practice wide’ approach to training within a positive and friendly atmosphere. Our registrars tell us that they feel well supported with easy access to their trainers. We hold daily ‘debrief’ sessions and weekly tutorials, tailored to individual needs.

The Practice has an excellent Primary Health Care Team including Nurse Practitioners, Practice Nurses, Health Care Assistants and an in house Phlebotomist. Working very closely with the practice staff, are the community staff, including District Nurses, Health Visitors and Midwife. The Practice is supported by our experienced team of administrative and reception staff. The team meets as regularly as possible and has a proactive approach to improving patient care.

In addition to a range of GP appointments being offered (pre-bookable and book on the day), we also offer Nurse Practitioner appointments plus a range of chronic disease management clinics, run largely by the nursing team. We have access to welfare rights advice, citizens’ advice and counselling services.

Our Practice is a high achiever in the Quality and Outcomes Framework and also achieves well under patient access/appointment targets and in patient questionnaires.

The Practice offers extended hours to patients, as well as participating in a range of clinical enhanced services. We take an active role in Practice Based Commissioning and are members of the Chesterfield Consortium of local practices.

Trainer’s names:
Dr Naren Senthil-Nathan (Partner)

Practice profile:
Chesterfield Medical Partnership is located across 3 sites in Chesterfield and serves 14,000 patients. We have 5 GP Partners and 1 Non- Clinical Partner and currently employ 4 salaried GPs.

Practice Director: Kate Chilton (Non-Clinical Partner)

Trainee Practice Managers: Hannah Coleman & Juliet Borrill

We have a wide clinical team including 4 Nurse Practitioners, 1 Pharmacist, 1 Paramedic, 5 Practice Nurses, 2 HCA’s and 1 Phlebotomist.

We work across 3 surgeries; the sites are Ashgate Medical Practice, Whittington Medical Centre and Holme Hall Surgery. Registrars will be allocated to our main purpose built site- Ashgate Medical Practice for their training.

We care for the residents of two local nursing homes which a GP will visit bi-weekly. One of our Nurse Practitioners is community based and see’s patients for preventative care, which we have found to be very effective in reducing emergency care.

High priority is placed on excellent clinical care and we always strive for 100% Quality Outcomes Framework achievement by the whole team.

We hold various regular meetings:
Nurse team meetings and clinical meetings bi-weekly
Monthly full team QUEST half day training. We get the opportunity to discuss practice issues, host outside speakers, run in-house teaching and present recent audits.
We also meet for coffee each morning between 11 and 11.30

We operate an extended hour’s surgery Tuesdays 18:30-20:30 and Thursdays 07:00-08:00. We have an Oncall clinic every day to assess the urgent appointment and visit requests.

We have electronic prescribing (EPS), online appointment booking and online access to medical records.

Dronfield Medical Practice

Address and contact details:

Dronfield Medical Centre
High Street
S18 1PY

Tel: 01246 412242


Dr Andrew Barr
Dr Sarah Leckenby

Practice profile:

We are an enthusiastic and friendly training practice made up of 3 Partners and 5 Salaried Doctors. We have an ethos of providing high quality personal medical care to our patients but at the same time value our own quality of life.

The practice is based in a purpose built medical centre opened in June 2008, situated in the centre of the small town of Dronfield on the edge of the Peak District. Dronfield is predominantly middle class and serves as dormitory town to Sheffield and Chesterfield.

The practice population is generally mobile, well-educated and receptive to preventative medicine; as a result the practice consistently achieves all targets. However, because the patients are so well informed this does create a high demand on our services. The practice population is relatively stable, at just over 10,000 but we do have a turnover of young families and a high proportion of elderly patients.

We pride ourselves on teamwork and meet daily to discuss referrals, visits and have a general catch up.
