GP services

Our GP services are raising the bar in patient experience by delivering a service designed to suit today’s busy lifestyles.

We operate six community general practices on behalf of the NHS, offering patients the full range of services they would expect from a local GP, including sexual health, vaccinations, cervical screening, diabetes and asthma clinics, stop smoking advice and blood pressure clinics.

Our approach to general practice is to provide a professional, cost-effective traditional family service. We strive to achieve high standards and excellent outcomes while reducing waiting times and inappropriate visits to hospital A&E departments.

Meeting local needs

Flexibility is vital in order to meet the needs of patients today. All our practices offer extended hours for GP appointments, typically 8am to 8pm seven days a week. We also offer consultations, appointment booking and prescription services over the internet as well as an innovative self-help service.

Our practices serve a rich mix of populations – we work with patients from a diverse social, cultural and ethnic demographic – so we’re able to handle even the most complex of health issues. Patients can also use our walk-in services even if they’re not from the local area or registered with a practice GP.

Innovation in primary care

We’re proud to have been awarded funding to pilot a new and innovative way of increasing access and quality of care to patients through our 24/7 phone and online treatment service. This, married with options for self-help, interactive texting and longer physical opening hours, means that we are delivering care in a way, and at times, that better suit our patients.

 

Providing care – day and night

 

For those times when GP practices and walk-in centres are closed, our range of out-of-hours services enables commissioners to continue to provide care to local people. We work closely with commissioners to provide locally tailored solutions, from a minor injury unit in High Wycombe to urgent care centres around the country.
