New Initiatives in Training
Medical Receptionist Apprentices: - We have recently appointed 2 new apprentices and look forward to helping mentor them through their time at Cheadle Medical Practice
Medical Students for Manchester Medical School: - In the past we have had occasional medical students at the practice from London Medical Schools. We hope to have Manchester students regularly
We are a training practice for GPs. This means we have doctors working at the practice who have been fully qualified for several years, and are now undergoing specialist training in General Practice. They are an important part of our team and are usually with us for between 6 and 18 months.
We occasionally have medical students, work experience student and other allied healthcare professional (eg: nurse, midwife) students visiting the practice for short attachments.
Services Offered at the Practice
Named Accountable GP
The partners take collective responsibility for patient care offered at Cheadle Medical Practice. Your notes will show that you have an accountable GP (which will be the same as your registered GP.) This does not alter your choice to see other GPs within the practice who you see regularly. If you wish to know who your named GP is, please contact the practice. Certain practitioners have special areas of interested and will supervise long term care in these conditions.
Out of Area Registration
Patients are able to choose to register at a practice in a different area to where they live. This is usually for convenience, for example where you work, etc. Each application to do this will be reviewed by the partners to ensure it is clinically appropriate, and the patient informed by letter of the outcome. If you are accepted as an Out of Area patient, more information about accessing routine and urgent medical services will be provided to you by post
