Dr Jill Fletcher

After nearly 25 years at Wilson Street Surgery I will be stepping down as a partner on the 30th June 2019.

Although I will still be working in general practice I will be significantly reducing my clinical workload and will be focussing on my roles training and supporting current and future GPs.

It has been a privilege to look after my patients and it is hard to go. However I know you are in good hands with the all the other doctors and staff at Wilson Street.

I would like to thank you for the kindness you have shown to me personally over the years.

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 last year, and Dr Nkwam left 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 Tia Gandhi. Dr Gandhi joined us on 8 October.

I feel proud of what Wilson Street achieves and hope you share those feelings - if not - let us know!

 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.

I trained as a GP in Derby, and first came to Wilson Street in 2015 as a trainee. I completed my GP training slower than some in 2018 having started my family, and promptly moved back to Wilson Street to join a great team as a Salaried GP and who I feel deliver great quality care. I enjoy lots of aspects of General Practice, but mostly the opportunity to get to know people over a long period. I live locally with my Husband and 2 young boys.
