Dr N Senthil-Nathan

Practice Manager: Mrs Jane Hoole

Practice Profile:

Wingerworth Surgery is based in the heart of Wingerworth, Chesterfield and serves a growing list of around 6000 patients.  We have seven permanent GPs, three are trainers (two are also Training Programme Directors for Chesterfield and Tara was previously Associate Dean) and one more has completed the Clinical Supervisor course and is qualified to perform WPBA assessments and debriefs with our Registrars.

The Practice has a full Primary Health Care Team (Practice Nurse, Health Care Assistant and Phlebotomist, Clinical Pharmacist, Care Coordinator). Working very closely with the practice staff are the community staff, including District Nurses, Health Visitors and Midwife. We have a monthly safeguarding meeting attending by our health visitors and school nurses. Our fortnightly virtual ward meeting involves the whole community team and our registrars usually end up chairing this by the end of ST3 giving them valuable leadership experience. We are part of the South Hardwick PCN and work collaboratively with other practices across the PCN area.

The practice is supported by our experienced team of administrative and reception staff.    The clinical team meet every Friday lunchtime for an in house “learning lunch” and we try to ensure education and good quality care go hand in hand in everything that we do.

As a team we like to put patients at the heart of what we do but also maintain a good work life balance because we know healthy, happy doctors make much more effective clinicians. 

We offer an educational experience which is tailored individually for each and every registrar.  We currently have three or four registrars at a time.  All registrars get at least a twice daily debrief, regular tutorials and time set aside for joint surgeries and video consulting.

Our practice population is generally affluent, well-educated and receptive to preventative medicine and as a result, practice consistently achieves all targets.  However, because patients are well educated, this does at times create high demand on our services.  It also means that by practising effectively, good quality consulting skills become second nature to all our GPs.
