Derwent Practice, in the market town of Malton, is a mixed practice serving 20000 patients in the town and adjacent villages. The town is large enough to give a flavour of urban practice but with low deprivation scores and the rural hinterland covers a number of picturesque villages and a few stately homes. It’s an easy journey to Malton by road or rail.
The eight partners are supported by a number of assistant doctors and a nurse-practitioner as well as experienced practice nursing and administrative teams. The practice operates a flexible personal list system and each partner has their own area of expertise. Teaching activities also extend to FY2 doctors, HYMS students and student nurses.
Medical services are provided to Malton Community Hospital including managing the inpatient unit and providing cover to the Urgent Care Centre. The inpatient unit takes patients suitable for step-up from the community as well as rehabilitation patients.
The trainer at Malton is currently Chris Jones. As well as scheduled tutorials trainees have some scheduled time for e-portfolio work, joint surgeries and the opportunity to join a ward round and be involved with patients at the Community Hospital.
Malton is a friendly, forward-looking practice which has been able to develop to meet present-day needs while preserving the traditional character and continuity of a market town practice. We want trainees to work as part of the team and to make the most of the learning opportunities here.
