Welcome to Shelford Medical Practice
We are an NHS general practice in Great Shelford.
Our team are here to treat minor ailments as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. You can do a lot of things from your home, such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment.
Partners in Care
Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.
Named accountable GP
All GP practices are now required to allocate a GP to each patient. That GP takes responsibility for the co-ordination of services for that patient. This does not mean that the GP is the only GP or clinician who will provide care to that patient. Patients may continue to see any GP that they wish.
Shelford Medical Practice has registered patients with the practice, not with an individual GP, and so the official registered GP may be any of our doctors. If you would like to know who your registered GP is, just ask one of our staff when you are next in the practice. Clinicians, receptionists and administrative staff are all able to look and see who your named accountable GP is. Nothing will change with regard to the care you receive, whoever your registered GP is.
Patients who are currently registered with either Dr Rann or Dr Tweedale will continue to be so for a while yet. When those two GPs’ leaving dates approach, we shall register “their” patients with another partner. When that happens, if you are one of the patients affected, you will receive a letter telling you who your new registered GP is.
If you are not one of those patients, you will not receive a letter telling you who your named accountable GP is, but you are welcome to ask any of us.
We are accredited as a University Teaching Practice by Cambridge University and as a Post Graduate Training Practice by the East of England Multi Professional Deanery. As such, we may sometimes host medical students at the practice.
Would you recommend us to your friends and family?
Shelford Medical Practice wants you to have the best possible experience of care. The NHS Friends and Family Test is one way of gathering your feedback so we can continually review our service.
It is based on one simple question:
“How likely are you to recommend our service to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment”
Your feedback will help us learn more about what you think of your experience – what you like and what you think we could improve. Ultimately you’re helping us to make changes that will ensure we can offer the best possible care.
