RACE TO THE PYRAMIDS

We have extremely big hearted GPs, though a little wacky!!!  Three of them have very kindly decided to raise money for Eastwood Memory Cafe with a totally amazing challenge.  I would be really grateful if you could share this with anyone and everyone you know, so we can hopefully reach the target set. 

 

Please see the following link:

In order to support the amazing work of Eastwood Memory Cafe; we have set ourselves the challenge of collectively running the equivalent distance of Eastwood to The Pyramids of Giza, 2200 miles, by the end of 2018 and would love to raise the same number in £s - £2200!!!

Please support this fabulous charity which makes such a difference to those affected by dementia in our local area.

Feel free to keep nagging us to get those running miles in. We will give monthly updates with progress toward our target!

Dr Atkinson, Dr Scullard and Dr Homer
 
 


 

Teaching

Eastwood Primary Care Centre has been accredited as a training practice This means a qualified doctor would work in surgery for between 4 and 12 months, under the supervision of  Dr Paul Scullard or Dr Mark Dickson, to obtain general practice experience.

On occasions, a GP Registrar will be sitting in during consultations with one of the regular Doctors or when seeing patients themselves will be  observed and assessed by Dr Scullard or Dr Dickson.

Occasionally the GP Registrar may ask to record the consultation for educational and assessment purposes. You will be notified of this and if you have any objection it is your privilege to ask that this does not occur. If you agree, you will be asked to sign a consent form and the video recording would be subject to the same confidentiality rules as your regular records. The recording would be destroyed as soon as the assessment/teaching session had occurred.

We also have nursing students with our practice nurses occasionally. They are well supervised and only allowed to carry out procedures after proving their competency. However, if you have any objection to them being present please mention this to the receptionist or practice nurse.
