A Fond Farewell

It saddens us to announce that our much loved salaried GP Dr Debbie Kennedy shall be leaving the Practice on the 11th July 2018 for pastures new.

Dr Kennedy has been a dedicated salaried GP of the practice for fifteen years. I'm sure everyone will join us in wishing her all the very best as she takes on her new role at Brailsford and Hulland Medical Centre. 

Dr Kennedy would like to say a huge thank you to all staff and patients who have made her work at Ashbourne Medical Practice so enjoyable.

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.


Watchdog

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.
