Our practice ethos is to strive towards a partnership between patients and health professionals based on the following:

Mutual Respect

We endeavour to treat all our patients with dignity, respect and honesty.  Everyone at the Grove Medical Centre is committed to deliver an excellent service.  We encourage patients to highlight any discrepancies and to offer the same commitment in return.

Holistic Care

We treat patients and illnesses.  This means that we are equally interested in the physical, psychological and social aspects of your individual care.

Continuity of Care

Building and maintaining a strong relationship betwn doctors, health professionals and patients is essential to the way we work.  This is especially so in the management of ongoing problems or long-term illness.  In these circumstances we encourage patients to see the same health professional and wherever possible we will facilitate this through our appointment system.

Learning and Training

We are a training practice and are committed to the ongoing training and Development doctors and nurses. We train specifically; med students, foundation doctors, GPs, nurses, clinical pharmacists, physician associates and advanced nurse practitioners.  We believe in life-long learning and all the health professionals here and administrative staff undergo an annual appraisal where the goals of the individual, teams and practice are discussed and agreement reached on the way forward for continued professional development.  Regular reviews act as a way of reinforcing effective performance, highlight areas for improvement and recognise developing strengths.

We also recognise the benefit of supported learning for our patients and families in enhancing ability to manage and deal with both self- limiting and long- term illnesses.

We hold monthly clinical practice meetings for learning, sharing and continued professional development, six-weekly clinician education meetings and quarterly reception staff learning and development meetings. We believe in clinical supervision and life-long learning.
