We are a large urban training practice based in two purpose built surgeries, looking after over 25,000 patients. Our vision is – Putting Patients First.
The practice is committed to innovation in providing high quality health care for our patients and a protected working and learning environment for our staff. Our Primary Health Care Team grows with 14.2 Full-time equivalent GPs working with Practice Nurses, Health Care Assistants, Physician Associates, Clinical Pharmacists, and Paramedics. We have visiting Substance Misuse Recovery workers, Talking Therapies professionals, district nurses and midwives.
Our entire team is committed to training. We have six GP trainers who with our other colleagues train doctors, medical students, Practice Nurses, Physician Associate, nursing and pharmacy students and Clinical Pharmacists. We have at least one educational meeting a week. We have GPs actively involved with the Slough Clinical Commissioning Group and leading multi-professional primary care education in Slough. We place an emphasis on communication, continual development and learning from each other’s experiences through quality improvement, incident recording and team problem sharing and solving.
We use a hosted clinical system (EMISweb) and speech recognition software for generating and managing referral letters. We are integrating the use of mobile applications to help with patient access.
We encourage our staff to have interests outside the practice, which we believe helps improve the quality and range of care we offer to patients and provide additional training opportunities for learners at the practice. Currently we have GPs with special interests in Substance Misuse, Gynaecology, Cardiology, Diabetes, Dermatology, Paediatrics, Orthopaedics and Minor Surgery.
This is a busy practice with a varied mix of population, ethnicity and interesting pathology. We work hard and enjoy what we do and it is a stimulating place in which to learn. We are keen to share our enthusiasm for primary care and this was featured through our involvement with the 2016-17 Channel 5 TV series, ‘GPs Behind Closed Doors’.
You will find us to be a genuinely warm, friendly and supportive group, comprising a variety of characters from different backgrounds. Our trainees have gone on to have successful careers and many have continued to work at Farnham Road Practice – the majority of our medical team trained at Farnham Road Practice. We make time to socialise as a practice with many charity events and our summer and Christmas parties.
