Statham Grove Surgery
Statham Grove is a lively, five-partner practice on the Hackney/Islington border. The surrounding area is mixed with pockets of deprivation and affluence, and is a great environment to work in, with the local colour of Clissold Park and Stoke Newington Church Street on your doorstep. We have a holistic approach to health and aim to provide efficient, comprehensive and accessible health care to our local community.
The list size of 7,550 patients is varied and multicultural. 15% are Turkish/Kurdish and we employ a Turkish Health Advocate to interpret and facilitate consultations with these patients. We successfully introduced Advanced Access in January 2003. Surgeries run from 9 - 12 noon daily, and from 4 - 6.30 pm (apart from Thursday).
We offer a full range of services with weekly antenatal, child health and cardiovascular care clinics, as well as monthly diabetic and asthma clinics. A family support worker is based at the practice as part of an innovative joint project with the Family Welfare Association. We also host weekly clinical psychology, counselling, benefits advice sessions, shiatsu and have close liaison with our local mental health team with monthly consultant outreach clinics.
The premises are purpose built and each registrar has their own consulting room, one with dedicated video facilities. We use computers to support the clinical, management, audit and educational needs of the practice. Each consulting room has its own networked PC, using the EMIS clinical system and connected to NHSnet.
The partners are supported by a strong staff team, and we hold regular practice, team and partnerships meetings to maintain cohesion and direction. We do however value each other's wider interests both inside and outside of medicine.
We have been a training practice for more than 12 years and we try to offer GP Registrars a formative but enjoyable year, hopefully helping to nurture and develop the skills and attitudes which will ensure a rewarding career in general practice. The practice as a whole supports an ethos of teaching and training.
A full time registrar might expect to work 7 clinical sessions per week, plus a protected 2-hour weekly tutorial and half day release to Homerton VTS. We encourage our registrars to fu
lly use the 30-day study leave entitlement to address their training needs with courses, specialist outpatient clinics etc. We hold regular clinical meetings and as an undergraduate teaching practice (Hub) linked with QMWC, we have a good library and IT links. We are participating members in the CAMIDOC out of hours co-operative.
After 6 months of supervised practice on call and introduction to co-operative on call, registrars can do supervised CAMIDOC on call at a rate of 1 session per month.
The practice Manager is Claire Lister.
