We are delighted to announce that Academy Medical Centre will continue to implement change and to deliver new models of care that will benefit patients.
At Academy Medical Centre, our new model is progressing. We deliver care through small multi-disciplinary teams of health professionals, each team comprising one GP, practice nurses, healthcare assistants and administrative staff. Patients are allocated to one of 5 small teams, each aiming to deliver tailored care to meet the needs of the individual. Coordinating care in this way will offer patients continuity with a group of care providers that they will get to know well. We have now extended the range of services available in the practice to include health psychology and social prescribing, with the aim of delivering a primary care service that comprehensively manages your medical condition and also addresses some of the wider factors that can affect health & wellbeing. All care will be coordinated by your team.
The premises have been upgraded to accommodate our new small team way of working and to deliver our ambitions for our new model of care. All patient requests will be assessed by a case management team who will ensure that your needs are responded to promptly by the most appropriate health professional. This means that, when you call, your request will be case managed by a doctor or nurse to ensure that your needs are met.
