AVOIDING UNPLANNED ADMISSIONS
Please be advised that the Practice is taking part in a National Enhanced Service which aims to reduce the number of unplanned admissions.
The Practice is in the process of sending letters to patients who have been identified as potentially requiring a higher level of care and who may be at risk of a future unplanned admission. The letters will provide the patient with a named accountable GP and an explanation of the additional service.

WELCOME TO THE PRACTICE
Historically the practice resulted from the combination of four practices covering Normanby, Eston, Grangetown, South Bank and the whole of Middlesbrough. It moved to 545 Normanby Road from South Bank in 1980 and from Longlands Road and North Ormesby to Crossfell Health Centre in May 1999. The Health Centre provides excellent, well equipped, purpose-built premises which offer a high quality surgery environment for both patients and practice team.
In October 2002 the practice joined the government pilot scheme to provide personal medical services (PMS) for our patients by employing extra staff and introducing additional clinics.
THE PRACTICE PHILOSOPHY
The aim of the practice is to provide high quality care at the point of need to our practice population (and other temporary residents). We will endeavour to anticipate needs and intervene with preventative strategies where available.
We encourage development of all our staff through recognised training schemes and in-house training and professional development in line with the White Paper expectations.
The care of our patients is fundamental to the service we provide and it should be recognised that the patient has responsibility in part for their own wellbeing. To that end we may prescribe treatments to aid a particular complaint or condition and may recommend changes and modifications in lifestyle to promote patients’ wellbeing.
We will review and monitor the services we provide to ensure that our commitment to high quality patient care remains constant.
