Haddenham is an attractive rural village situated halfway between Aylesbury and Thame. We have four partners and one salaried doctor, serving a population of 8,000 patients from Haddenham and the surrounding villages. In October 2005 we moved into new premises on the outskirts of the village. The new Medical Centre has been designed for twenty first century healthcare offering superb facilities for both patients and staff.
Our patient population comprises educated professionals as well as rural poverty and we have an above average elderly population. We are proud to boast a highly motivated and happy primary health care team including practice nurses, district nurses, health visitors, midwife and counsellor all backed up by a long serving team of reception and administrative staff. Our doctors include two established trainers, one new trainer and two ex-trainers. We have embraced IT in our practice and are moving towards being paperless.
Proud to be a long-established training practice since 1977 we train GP registrars, medical students and nursing students. We are all committed not only to help train new health care professionals, but to continue the development of our own knowledge and skills. We have regular clinical and whole-team meetings for education. The training atmosphere pervades all as training is seen as vitally important.
Registrar time for learning is respected and protected. All members of the Primary Health Care Team are involved at some time or another and modern teaching methods are used. Our aim is that each attached registrar will be enabled to fulfil their potential. Registrars attend the Aylesbury VTS Day Release and have one or two tutorials a week in addition to joint surgeries. We encourage reflective practice and allow adequate time for this as well as supporting time for necessary courses.
