Senior Healthcare Support Workers support practice nurses with their daily work and carry out tasks such as phlebotomy (drawing blood), blood pressure measurement and new patient checks. They may act as a chaperone when a patient or doctor requests one.
The practice manager is involved in managing all of the business aspects of the practice such as making sure that the right systems are in place to provide a high quality of patient care, human resources, finance, patient safety, premises and equipment and information technology. The practice manager supports the GPs and other medical professionals with delivering patient services and also helps to develop extended services to enhance patient care.
Receptionists provide an important link for patients with the practice and are your initial contact point for general enquiries. They can provide basic information on services and results and direct you to the right person depending on your health issue or query. Receptionists make most of the patient appointments with the GPs and nurses. They also perform other important tasks such as issuing repeat prescriptions and dealing with prescription enquiries, dealing with financial claims, dealing with patient records and carrying out searches and practice audits.
The Surgery became a training practice in August 2010. Training practices have a GP Registrar in the practice as part of their specialist training in General Practice.
If you are given an appointment with our registrar you will be notified that this is the case.
4th and 5th Year - Medical Student Training
In 2007 the practice accepted 4th and 5th year medical students from Brighton Medical School as well as the London Medical Schools of Guys, St. Thomas's, St. Barts and the Imperial College.
When medical students are in the surgery, either shadowing one of our doctors or nurses or undertaking their own consultations, you will be notified by the receptionists when making the appointment and reminded when you come to the surgery for your appointment. Medical students when undertaking a shadowing role, require your consent for them to be in the consulting room. If you do not wish the student to be present, you can request that they be asked to leave. On other occasions the medical students will actually conduct the consultation, but the GP tutor will always oversee this. Your consent is required for the student to undertake consultations, but bear in mind your GP will also be involved. As you are partaking in the student’s training the appointment will be slightly longer to allow for the tutorial aspects.
