Woodcock Road surgery is an urban practice with a list size of around 7800 patients which is increasing all the time. We have our own purpose built building with car park which prvides a pleasant environment to work in. Our practice area is relatively small and covers a fairly densely populated area with a wide range of patients from the nearby areas of Mile Cross, Old Catton and Hellesdon. This does include some areas of high deprivation which is both challenging attimes and very rewarding. We aim to provide medical care of the highest quality.
We feel the exposure to a variety of clinical conditions in physical healt, mental healt and social issues will challenge trainees but also provide a solid foundation for their future careers.
We have an excellent team of administration staff and nursing staff and we all work well together. The practie is very well-managed by our practice manager Sally-Ann Hornby and we feel our practice is a friendly, well-supported place to work.
We have recently been approved as a training practice and have one Associate Trainer, Dr Allison MacNab. We have another GP who has almost completed her training to be an Associate Trainer, Dr Raija Blenk.
However, all partners and staff are committed to ensuring a high level of support and training during a placement at the surgery.
We would initially be supported by a Trainer from another practice until we were able to become a full Training practice.
