Update from Dr James
Dr James here,
From Monday 3rd December, we are asking our Patient Services Advisors, to request a brief outline of your symptoms when we book you an appointment.
This is for us to ensure you see the right clinician for the problem you are calling about.
All of our staff are committed to patient confidentiality, and are experienced in dealing with sensitive information.
Working closely with our GPs, we have a team of Advanced Practitioners, who can see you for many minor illnesses, such as coughs, colds, chest and urine infections, aches and pains and minor injuries. Our Advanced Practitioners can also write prescriptions, should you require medication for your problem.
Did you also know we may be able to offer you an evening or weekend appointment at a local surgery, for a range of illnesses? Please ask our Patient Services Team for more information
Please help us to help you.
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.
