Practice Management

Our managers are 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.

Both managers are happy accept any constructive comments or complaints you may have but please be aware that we may not be immediately available due to practice commitments. We will always endeavour to contact you by telephone or letter to discuss the issues you wish to raise.

Before any caller is put through to one of the practice managers the reception team are instructed to obtain some basic details of the nature of the call. This is to avoid wasting both the patient and managers time. It has been known that patients have contacted the managers for blood test results or prescription requests. Our reception teams have more expertise in these areas and are happy to help.

We do have suggestion/comment forms available at our reception desks and in the waiting rooms. Once completed these are passed to the managers.

Our receptionists are here to help you. They are fully trained and do a difficult job well. Receptionists will arrange appointments either with the doctor or a practice nurse, and will take requests for home visits or arrange for you to speak to a doctor or nurse on the telephone. They can give patients results of laboratory tests. Sometimes they may need to ask one or two questions to help judge the urgency of your request, or how best to help you, but the information you give will always been treated in confidence as they are bound by the same codes of conduct as the doctors. Please treat all staff with respect. If we are all polite to each other any problems can be resolved both quickly and amicably.

By contacting the centre you will be able to speak to a member of the team who will listen to your concerns, take your details and where necessary refer you to a qualified NHS nurse who can offer you any advice and support where necessary.

PCN (Primary Care Network) roles

PCN Roles

Health Village and Dearne Valley PCN (Primary Care Network) is a collaboration between three practices – Clifton Medical Centre, Market Surgery and St Ann’s Medical Centre.

There are various roles within the PCN.

A PCN Clinical Pharmacist works alongside a multidisciplinary team of health care professionals to support your GP practice in meeting the health and social care needs of patients and helping to improve access to care. They provide support for prescription and medication queries. They undertake clinical medication reviews to support patients. They work to encourage patients to manage common and minor ailments and to promote self-care.

Pharmacy Technician
