BIG CHANGES AT WILSON STREET!

Unfortunately, two of our doctors are moving on to new chapters of their lives – Dr Burton left Wilson Street at the start of September, and Dr Nkwam leaves us at the end of October. Replacing two doctors has not been easy, and we have taken the decision to employ three Advanced Clinical Practitioners, or ACPs for short. In the best spirit of our vision to train new clinicians, our own practice nurse Angela Parker has been in training to start in this new role, and we are also training Faisal Hussain, a prescribing pharmacist, who will be starting to see patients as an ACP in around six months. At the moment, you might see Faisal doing health checks for some chronic problems. We have also taken on experienced ACP Kelly Elliott. The ACPs are trained to see and treat minor ailments, freeing up GP appointments

BUT WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR ME?

From the 1st October you will hear a new message when you call for an appointment, informing you that our reception staff will ask you to briefly describe your problem. This aides us in booking you with the most appropriate member of staff. A comprehensive list of the problems that the ACPs can help with is below:

  • Allergies (e.g. hay fever/ allergic reactions)
  • Asthma, COPD
  • Back, leg and joint pains
  • Breast problems
  • Constipation
  • Coughs & colds, chest infections
  • Cystitis or urinary tract (water) infections
  • Dizziness
  • Eye problems such as conjunctivitis
  • Earache and ear infections
  • Contraception, including Emergency contraception
  • Headaches
  • Indigestion or acid reflux
  • Incontinence
  • Low mood, anxiety problems
  • Men’s Health
  • Minor Injuries, including wounds, burns and scalds
  • Skin problems such as rashes, eczema, psoriasis, ulcers, and insect bites
  • Sore throats
  • Tiredness, fatigue
  • Vaginal discharge and sexual health
  • Vomiting & Diarrhoea

Because of their level of training, the ACPs are unable to treat pregnant women, Kelly cannot see children under 1, and at present Angela cannot see children under 14.

The ACPs will also be available to treat emergency problems.

The bottom line is that we will be offering more appointments and a more efficient service for everyone!

A NEW GP AS WELL?!

In addition to the changes above, we have also employed a new GP, Dr Ghandi. We are very much looking forward to her starting on the 8th of October.

Originally from the west coast of Scotland, I qualified from Dundee University in 2007. I began my medical career there before relocating to Derbyshire in 2009. I started GP training in 2011 with my first placement being at Wilson Street. I returned for my final year of training in 2013 and took up Partnership on completion of my training in August 2014. I have particular interests in Cardiology, Dermatology, Minor Surgery and Joint Injections.

 Larry Higgs

 Dr Larry Higgs

Originally from the Cotswolds, I now call the East Midlands my home, having moved here to study medicine and never leaving! I was lucky enough to join Wilson Street as a trainee in 2008 and hoped to remain as a partner, but it was not to be, and after completing training I worked in another local practice, Alvaston Medical Centre, for a little over four years. However, I am thrilled to be back at Wilson Street, as I believe it offers the highest in clinical excellence.

 

I work full time at Wilson Street, and also do one session a week for the out-of-hours GP service. I am a GP Trainer and am also interested in palliative care and medical acupuncture, although not currently practicing. I live in Nottingham with my wife and three young children.
