The practice and its philosophy
This GMS (General Medical Services) practice has existed for over 60 years operating from practice owned premises. The practice has a current list size of 11,500 and is part of the North Lincolnshire CCG (Clinical Commissioning Group). QoF (Quality and Outcomes Framework) points have remained steady for four years. There is deprivation in some areas of Scunthorpe, but the patient population is very varied and covers both rural and suburban areas. The practice is committed to improving working lives and is an equal opportunities employer.
The doctors value team spirit and expect their staff to be similarly committed. There is a relaxed atmosphere at the surgery and the environment is very pleasant to work in. The partners strongly feel that quality is more important than quantity and feel they offer a good range of services with easy access to clinicians.
