ANP’s work in close collaboration with the Doctors.
We have introduced ANP’s here at Ashbourne Medical Practice to
provide a proactive response to the changing of the healthcare environment.
This allows the practice to offer an improved quality service for
appointments with GP’s and available time for patients with more complex medical needs and end of life conditions.
Our Reception Team may ask the reason for your appointment.
This will help us to triage and signpost you towards the most appropriate healthcare professional and help you to be seen in a timely manner.
We welcome your valuable feedback to ensure we continue to offer an effective, efficient and improved quality service to our patients here at
Ashbourne Medical Practice.
At Healthwatch, a patient watchdog funded by the Department of Health, we have developed a website in order to encourage more people to share their experiences of health and social care services. A major feature of the site is the option for people to rate and review their local health and social care services.
Please feel free to leave your comments and reviews https://healthwatchderbyshire.co.uk/services/ashbourne-medical-practice/
All feedback is greatly appreciated.
