ANIMA

ANIMA!

From 1st April all Practices are required to offer patients an "assessment of need" on first contact, so we have introduced Anima!
Patients requesting an appointment with a clinician will need to complete a request using Anima via the link below.
 
(Please note this does not apply for any appointments in our Treatment Room)
 
If you are unable to do this online our Patient Services Care Co-ordinators will be able to continue to help you over the phone. Your request will be handled in exactly the same manner whether you complete the Anima request online yourself or contact us via the telephone to ensure equity of access to all patients.
 
Completing an Anima request online yourself provides you with more discretion should you prefer not to discuss your medical problem with one of our Patient Services Care Co-ordinators.
 
To log in, please follow the below link or select the Anima icon above:

Danetre Medical Practice has a free car park for our patients to use located to the left of the main enterance. However, cars parked here are left at their own risk. 

Please also be mindful the car park is communal between us, the hospital and the nursery located on site and as a result at times can become extremely busy.

We also offer routine GP appointments and specialised clinics to help with accessibility for those who find it difficult to attend appointments during our core opening hours.

Northamptonshire Breast Screening

From 2nd January 2024 Northamptonshire Breast Screening Service will be inviting Danetre Medical Practice patients aged 50-70 for a routine breast screening appointment.
 
(The age extension trial where women aged 47-49 & 71-73 has been ceased, however women aged 71 years and over can self refer for the service every 3 years)
 
Breast screening involves an x-ray of the breast, most commonly known as a mammogram. For many women, mammograms are the best way to find breast cancer early, when it is easier to treat and before it is big enough to feel or cause any symptoms.
 
You will be routinely recalled and invited via letter, however if you have any questions our Patient Services Team are on hand to help with any queries.

Accessibility

We want to ensure that as many people as possible are able to use our website. We have tried to make sure that website text is as simple as possible to understand and that all accessibility compliance standards are met. However we do understand that there may be some areas which are not fully accessible.

For further information please see our accessibility information here.

We are always looking to improve the accessibility of our website and content is reviewed quarterly by practice staff, our supplier or by a third party.

Welcome message from Jo Gilford - Practice Manager

Welcome to Danetre Medical Practice

Here at Danetre Medical Practice we are a compassionate and committed provider of clinical excellence.

Our staff are motivated to achieve their maximum potential and deliver diverse, local and patient centred services.

To ensure we provide first-rate, cost effective healthcare we work closely with our patients and listen to what they have to say. After all, patients are the key part of any Medical Practice so we take pride in giving them a voice.

The Practice itself is located in close proximity to Daventry Town centre in a modern building adjoining Danetre Hospital (a community hospital which opened in September 2006) offering a wide range of services and delivering a high standard of care.

Also attached to the Practice operating independently is Boots Chemist.

Contained within the site is a purpose built free car parking provision for visitors and staff.

All employers are expected to park within the car parks adjacent to the boundary of the site allowing the car parks nearer the Practice and Hospital to be used by patients visiting the site.

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.

Recruitment has now commenced to these new positions and we will be looking to build the team over the coming months.

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.
