Byron Medical is a Training Practice
What are the advantages of this?
Training practices must meet higher standards than ordinary practices. Doctors who train others must have had extra training themselves. Doctors who have recently worked in hospital often bring new ideas and help the practice keep up to date.
Training doctors locally helps to make sure that there are enough GPs in the area.
From April 2015 all Practices are required to provide patients with a Named / Accountable GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our Practice provides to them. If you would like to know who your Named GP is, please ask the Receptionist. Having a Named GP does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the Practice as you currently do.
The Nurse Practitioner deals with minor illness and acute medical problems as well as being responsible for chronic desease management. Many problems which traditionally required the attention of a GP can now be dealt with by our highly trained Specialist Nurse Practitioner.
Nurse Practitioners are experienced nurses who have undergone additional specialist training.
