Happy First Anniversary to Northville Family Practice

northvilleBrisDoc are proud to be celebrating our first year of management at Northville Family Practice, it has been a fantastic year with lots of great things to feel positive about.

Having started with no salaried GPs, we are pleased that over the past 12 months we have recruited new clinical staff including five GPs and a Lead GP and two Lead Nurses. This has made a great difference to continuity of care for our patients and a more stable working environment for our Operational staff.

The appointment of Karen Biddel as Practice Manager has given a strong lead for the practice and her role is now being supported with Nina Brown joining the team as Operational Manager.

Dr. Alison Hutchings has been appointed as Lead GP and the whole team now has new leadership from Dr Becca Hennessy who has been appointed as BrisDoc Deputy Medical Director with a focus on in hours Primary Care services.

It was fantastic to see so many Northville team members celebrating with us at our most recent long service awards, with many members of the team being recognised for achieving between 10 and 30+ years service.

Over the year the building has received some loving care with new paint, chairs and carpet.

The team has been giving super patient care and the list is steadily increasing as patients come to join us.  We have had some superb feedback via patient feedback cards such as:

“Northville is small practice where the doctors actually know you.  The nurse service is excellent and the helpfulness of the reception staff when trying to book an appointment is great”

Well done to everyone and let’s look forward to another year of great progress.
