We are a six partner training practice situated in the market town of Bourne in semi-rural South Lincolnshire.
There are four full time and two part time partners making up a total of five whole time equivalent doctors. We have a full complement of Practice staff including a strong practice nursing team, dispensary and phlebotomy teams backed by a management team of reception, typing, audit and finance staff all led by our Practice Manager. We offer a full range of general medical services including maternity, child health, vaccination, contraception, chronic disease management, warfarin and disease modifying anti-rheumatic drug monitoring. Our treatment room services include travel vaccination services in addition to the child vaccinations. Leg ulcer management, minor injuries and minor illness advice is also offered by our nursing service.
We can take blood on site and also perform ECGs, spirometry, and ambulatory blood pressure monitoring when requested by our doctors.
Our private services include LGV, adoption, pre-employment and insurance medicals, insurance and various private reports for patients where needed. A full list of charges is displayed in our waiting room.
We train doctors to become General Medical Practitioners and are part of the East Midlands Deanery. Our trainers are Dr Paul Cregor and Dr Julie Harris.
The original house was extended to provide extensive and modern medical treatment areas. The old part of the house is used exclusively by the administrative and clerical staff and also provides office accommodation for the District Nurses and Health Visitors attached to the Practice. Our extension is single storey therefore there are no stairs or lifts and we are able to offer easy and wide access for the elderly and disabled patients and to parents using pushchairs and prams. The new extension also boasts a large waiting room with plenty of seating for patients and a separate children's play area.
There is also a purpose built toilet for the disabled and baby changing facilities. We have seven well equipped consulting rooms and a suite of treatment rooms which include a general nurses treatment room, a phlebotomist's room and a minor operations' room. The Practice Dispensary is located centrally in the patient area. Our dispensary waiting room is opposite to allow patients to wait in comfort whilst their medication is dispensed. The Alistair Suite (named after our founder) is at the end of the doctors' corridor and is used by Physiotherapists and the Health Visitors for baby clinics.
There are two car parks at the Surgery. One is exclusively for doctors and staff use. Our patient car park has 3 disabled bays and patients are usually able to park with ease.
Boundaries for registration
The Practice has grown steadily over the years and we now have 9000 patients registered. We provide a fully comprehensive medical service to our patients which includes visiting their homes when medically indicated. It is therefore necessary for us to register patients in an area with which we are able to administer emergency care with safety. Our Practice area has a radius of approximately 5.5 miles from the centre of Bourne. The Practice is situated 300 yards from the bus station and we will try to fit appointments to suit bus services from surrounding villages if you have no alternative transport. The boundaries for registering patients boundaries for registering patients are indicated on the map on the right.
