North Trafford Group Practice
- North Trafford Group Practice
North Trafford Group Practice (www.chesterroadsurgery.co.uk) is a 9700 patient practice just south of city centre Manchester. We currently have three full time GP partners and a salaried GP, with another due to start in January. We also have a strong nursing team with an emergency nurse practitioner, nurse prescriber, Nurse practitioner and two HCA’s. Our practice manager is highly experienced and leads our efficient and supportive reception and admin team which has a very low staff turnover. A clinical pharmacist will also be starting at the practice in the New Year. We achieved a Good rating at our last CQC inspection in February 2017.
As a modern, forward thinking practice we are keen on exploring new ways of working to optimise our work life balance as well as the service we provide. We are also working with other practices to develop Trafford’s New Models of Care and shape the future of general practice locally.
The practice provides a full range of enhanced services including minor surgery. We use EMIS web, Lexacom digital dictation and are paper-lite using DocMan.
The partners at the practice are involved with the LMC, GP appraisal, research and medical student training. One of the partners is currently doing the Basic Trainer’s course and the other partner is hoping to start the course in January 2018. We are well on course to achieve training status by August 2018 and would like an incoming partner to be an approved trainer or have the intention and commitment to become a GP trainer. We are keen to diversify our skill set, so portfolio working and special interest training will be encouraged and supported.
The practice is well located being between the city centre and attractive housing in the leafy suburbs of Cheshire. Trafford ranks in the top ten UK areas for primary school education and Manchester has many top ranking secondary schools.
