We now have a newly formed Daventry Primary Care Network (DCPN) Multi Disciplinary Team (MDT). The newly created network sees the two outstanding CQC practices of Abbey House Medical Practice and Danetre Medical Practice join together to deliver a set of seven national service specifications.

Based in Daventry, the team will have a lively and vibrant working atmosphere. Our size and resources will also enable us to offer a range of attractive benefits as well as unparalleled education and development opportunities for staff at all levels. The DPCN prides itself on its investment in staff both in terms of developing career skills but also its commitment to staff health and wellbeing.

The team will be made up of:        

  • Advanced Nurse Practitioners
  • Clinical Pharmacists
  • Social Prescribing Link Workers
  • Advanced Practice Physiotherapists
  • Physical Associates
  • Advanced Paramedic Practitioners

As part of this new initiative the integrated community-based teams will also be developing and configuring their services around the DPCN enabling the team to provide improved services to patients.

Accredited GP Training Practice

Dr Trudy Lewis is a qualified trainer within the practice

General Practice Training

Danetre Medical Practice participates in the General Practice Vocational Training Scheme, whereby fully qualified doctors wishing to enter general practice receive three years’ further training. From time to time one of these doctors (GP registrars) will be based here for a period of up to 12 months and will be available for consultations. Dr Trudy Lewis is the qualified trainer.

At any time if you do not wish to have a trainee GP or medical student observing at your consultation please feel free to bring this to the attention of the receptionist or GP. At no time will this decision prejudice your care with us.

As part of their training the GP registrars have to video record some of their consultations as part of their assessment. You may be asked by the receptionists if you would be happy to take part in this if you have an appointment with the GP registrar. At any time you are able to say “no” to being videotaped and this will not prejudice the way your consultation is viewed or handled in any way.

If you are happy to be videotaped the receptionist will ask you to read a letter about the process and to sign a consent form. At the end of your consultation, if you don’t wish the tape to be used, you can state this and the tape will be erased.
