Change of Practice Manager
Rick Gooch has been the Practice Manager at Abbey Medical Group for the past 6.5years and has now moved to a practice in Chesterfield. Everyone at AMG wishes Rick all the best in his new practice.
Fran Chater has taken over post as our new practice manager and would like to say a warm hello to our local community (see below)
I am delighted to have taken up the post as Practice Manager at the Abbey Medical Group and look forward to meeting lots of you over the coming months. Even though I am only just finding my feet, I can already see what a fantastic team we have here at AMG who are all dedicated to providing excellent patient care.
I am excited to be working with an extremely proactive PPG who are striving to provide the best care possible for our community.
As you know, we are navigating an extremely challenging period in General Practice at the moment with the emergence of Coronavirus and I hope that you will bear with us while we try to ensure that all patients and staff are kept safe at all times.
As always, at AMG we are happy to receive your constructive feedback and suggestions.
Blidworth on the move
Blidworth on the move has evolved directly from the support the Abbey Medical Groups (AMG) Patient Participation Group (PPG) and other local benefactors in the Blidworth and Rainworth areas.
It is a service that provides transport for patients and carers across local communities that are vulnerable, have transport issues and need to get to the doctors’ surgery in Ravenshead from Blidworth or Rainworth or to the hospital.
We as a group are working alongside other local voluntary transports schemes. The difference between our scheme is that we are trying to maintain the highest PPE to protect the vulnerable. We are most fortunate that through the support of the local family business Rainworth Fencing, they have come forward with an adapted vehicle that can take a wheelchair and has a Perspex screen to protect the driver and patients during the Covid 19 pandemic.
We want to ensure that those who are shielded, vulnerable, with special needs, elderly, sick, infirm, disabled or poor during this crisis get much needed medical treatment. This is a unique scheme and at the present we are limited and therefore only able to support Abbey Medical Group patients living in Blidworth and Rainworth areas.
We have limited resources.
The GP Partners and team at AMG support the initiative and appreciate the added support this scheme gives patients.
The drivers have full DBS checks and appropriate support and training
