We have a Midwife based with the Practice. She holds a weekly Ante-Natal Clinic for regular review of ante natal and post natal patients.
Patients requiring physiotherapy are referred to a centralised Access Point who will then contact the patient to arrange an appointment with choice of where to have their assessment and any treatment needed.
The Podiatry Service offers a limited service mainly to patients with Diabetes and severe circulatory disorders. Referrals are through the GPs
There is a small team of Counsellors working within the Practice. Referrals to this services if via the GPs.
Shared Medical Appointments
Physicians and other healthcare professionals are always seeking better ways to offer access to high quality care to our patients. That’s why Hackenthorpe Medical Centre are planning to pilot shared medical appointments (SMAs) with some of our patients who have chronic obstructive airways disase.
SMAs offer an innovative, interactive approach to healthcare that brings patients with common needs together with one or more healthcare providers. While an individual appointment typically lasts 15 to 30 minutes, a shared appointment is 90 minutes long, allowing participants to spend more time with the healthcare team.
