At Dinnington Group Practice, we aim to treat all our patients promptly, courteously and in complete confidence. We feel it is important you know who you are speaking to, so our practice staff wear a name badge and identify themselves on the telephone.
We are a ‘GP Training Practice’. This means hospital doctors wanting to enter general practice spend up to 12 months with us in order to gain the experience they need to become family doctors. As a training practice, your medical records may be used for educational purposes. Because of this, we ask patients registering with us to sign a consent form giving permission for their records to be used in this way. As part of their training, these doctors are required to video a number of their consultations. You may be asked to participate in this if you wish to, or you may opt to see another doctor.
This practice is within the Rotherham Primary Care Trust area.
The Woodsetts Surgery operates as an independent surgery. This is because it used to be a separate single handed practice before it was incorporated into the Dinnington Group Practice. It offers a full appointment system, and provides emergency appointments and visits if required. Test results are sent directly to the surgery at Woodsetts and so patients will be routinely seen and followed up there. The only exception is on Wednesday afternoons when the surgery is closed and emergencies are dealt with through the main Dinnington surgery.
