Welcome to Caythorpe and Ancaster Medical Practice
Welcome to Caythorpe and Ancaster medical practice. We are a semi-rural, training and teaching practice working from two sites, providing health care for a population of 8700 patients.
We aim to be innovative by incorporating the best of the new whilst not losing sight of the importance of the traditions of good family medicine. We embrace current evidence based medical thinking and try and apply this to the care of our patients.
Our policy has always been to embrace healthcare reforms, but to interpret them in a way that we feel is meaningful and enhances the care of our patients. Thus, for example, we were one of the original Primary Care Act Pilot sites nationally, and used this initiative to develop chronic disease management within the practice. More recently we have been able to adopt the principles of the nGMS contract into our working practice and have, with minimal additional workload, been able to achieve maximum Quality and Outcome Framework (QOF) points and we would seek to maintain this level of achievement – not merely as a matter of data collection, but rather as an index of high quality co-ordinated clinical care which is in the best interest of our patients.
