Kiltearn Medical Centre provides services for over 13,250 patients based in Church View Primary Care Centre in Nantwich Town.
We have 6 GP partners and 2 Salaried GPs, 2 Nurse Practitioners, 4 Practice Nurses, 1 Assistant Practitioner, 1 Health Care Assistant and a Practice Pharmacist. We provide in-house Physiotherapy, Phlebotomy and dietician clinics, and Ultrasound and Audiology are also based on our floor. Our Nurse Practitioners are trained in prescribing under the Minor Ailments Scheme.
We host student nurse placements and we have successfully employed one of the students, post qualification, who wanted to become a Practice Nurse. The GPs have special interests which enables us to offer additional services for Coils, Implants, Joint Injections and Minor Operations.
We have a strong and well-trained administrative team who have just participated in the Care Navigation accreditation, which allows them to signpost patients to the most appropriate service available. We are high achieving in signing up patients for online access and we have a Patient Experience Coordinator who can provide patients with IT support.
The Patient Experience Coordinator is also available to discuss any concerns or queries regarding the patient’s experience of our practice.
An experienced team, we have strong links with CRN northwest coastal and Industry. The studies we recruit for come from both academic and commercial agencies. We have taken part in studies that have brought new drug therapies to disease areas at an early stage in the approval process. We pride ourselves on our recruitment and retention of study participants. We review studies as a team to ensure appropriateness and value before offering them to our patient population.
We have a dedicated nurse team which we share with a neighbouring practice, and three GPs with research experience and GCP qualifications.
Working alongside four other practices, we are part of Nantwich and Rural Care Community. Care Communities are about the local community. They include the local GP network but are wider than this. They need to be broad and include all parties with an interest in the health of the local population – including representation from local people themselves.
