Noticeboard

Coronavirus

The NHS and Public Health England (PHE) are extremely well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases. The current risk to the general public is moderate.

You can help too. Germs can live on some surfaces for hours. To protect yourself and others:

  • Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze.
  • Bin the tissue, and to kill the germs, wash your hands with soap and water, or use a sanitiser gel.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are unwell.
  • If you have arrived back from an affected area within the last 14 days and develop symptoms of cough or fever or shortness of breath, you should immediately:
    - Stay indoors and avoid contact with other people as you would with the flu
    - Call NHS 111 to inform them of your recent travel to the country

This is the best way to slow the spread of almost any germs, including Coronavirus.

Training & Research

Training practice

two_female_medical_students_2We are approved by the East Midlands Healthcare Workforce Deanery to train GP Registrars and Foundation doctors.

GP Registrars are qualified doctors who have chosen General practice for their medical career and are required to do two years training in a GP practice.

Foundation doctors are qualified doctors who have not necessarily chosen General practice for their medical career. They are required to do a four month placement in order to gain experience in General practice.

We are also training medical students from Leicester University. They are supervised at all times and do not make patient management decisions on their own.

We acknowledge that some patients may prefer not to see a doctor in training, or a student and we will respect any concerns you may have. Please let a member of staff know if you do not wish to seen by a trainee or be seen by the doctor with a trainee present.

Research 

The Studfall Partnership is now accredited as Research Ready by the Royal College of General Practitioners. We only participate in research that is approved and ethically cleared through the Primary Care Research Network which is part of the National Institute of Health Research.

We thank those patients who have consented to take part in the ongoing PACE study by Cambridge University which will help us improve care of lung cancer and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
