Clinical Micro teams
What are Clinical Micro Teams?
Clinical micro teams (former buddy groups) have been formed to ensure continuity for our patients with a smaller sub-group of buddy doctors who work closely together and cross cover their patient lists in the event of any absences especially as a number of GPs now opt to work part-time and lead portfolio careers. We have 4 current clinical microteams; click here to view.
This does not prevent you seeing any doctor of your choice. However, all patients now have a named GP and it will be quite useful for you to acquaint yourselves with your named GP and their buddy clinicians who can provide a better degree of continuity of care especially for long standing or chronic problems and conditions.
The "Brook" clinical subteam will be predominantly based at the Holburne Road surgery and you may find it easier to see these doctors there than at Ferryview Health Centre.
