Wyke Regis & Lanehouse Medical Practice
Would you like to work in a practice that offers 15-minute appointments with a low visit workload?
Please consider joining our multidisciplinary team, where we look to work innovatively, whilst retaining a holistic patient-centred approach to primary care.
We serve a population of 15,500 in the West of Weymouth over 3 sites and have a wonderful skill mix in our team which includes 2 GP partners, 6 salaried GPs, 2 retainer GPs, 2 advanced nurse practitioners, 1 x paramedics and a full complement of nursing team. We are supported by a loyal administrative team which includes reception staff trained to signpost, workflow administrators, a prescriptions clerk, a pharmacy technician, a long-term condition team, an extensive secretarial team and a long serving dynamic practice manager.
We have been a training practice for many years, and this fosters a stimulating learning environment for all. Our regular clinical update meetings have been complemented by other local GPs!
Our practice has a reputation for putting the care of patients first. We have an excellent QOF record.
We offer vasectomy, minor surgery, a full range of joint injections and IUCD insertion. Staff at the practice hold influential roles on the locality leadership board and GP Federation board, as well as locality lead roles in prescribing, diabetes and respiratory medicine.
Other initiatives adopted by the surgery include E- consult, video consults, dragon voice dictation software incorporating itself into System1, dual monitors and home working for flexibility. We use MS teams to support communication across the practice. We are becoming a sentinel site for Virtual group consultations and have established patient champions to support the population.
We work closely with the locality and federation and as such benefit from the Weymouth integrated care frailty Hub, Weymouth Elderly care service a service which supports care home and housebound patients and MUCS, the locality mobile urgent visiting service provided for our frail patients during the day. These initiatives have significantly reduced our visit load.
We also have access to a clinical pharmacist and pharmacy technician which helps with patient safety issues and drug reconciliations. We have an enthusiastic workflow team to manage documents coming into the practice for GPs.
