Thank Goodness Its Friday! A common saying but not one I’m fully on board with…

Mondays are no different to Fridays except in your perception. How many of you think TGI Monday? How would Mondays be different if you did?

You may have gathered from a previous post that I like my cricket, and while the result didn’t go the way I’d like, the recent series between Australia and India was a cracker. Jarrod Kimber sets the scene far better than I can:

Ishant Sharma and Bhuvneshwar Kumar never even got on a plane. Rohit Sharma got delayed. Virat Kohli went home after one. KL Rahul was injured without playing. Mohammad Shami almost lost his arm after one Test. Umesh Yadav limped off after three innings. Ravindra Jadeja virtually had his thumb removed. Rishabh Pant had to get scans. Hanuma Vihari’s hamstring looks shot. 17 players have been used in three Tests. They might play as many as 19 to finish the series. 

India were beset by injuries and departures as you can read above. They still won the series. Perhaps they won because the Australians were fatigued after back to back to back games in a bubble. Perhaps the injection of fresh faces, fresh minds, and fresh bodies gave them an edge. Perhaps the better team just won, against all odds. The better team.

General Practice always involves teamwork – Your GP knows a fair bit about a lot, but there are always subject matter experts or specialists. We have Physiotherapy with Rod and Movement Theory, and Podiatry with Rosie from Foot and Sole Podiatry onsite, and we have THREE awesome psychologists to help your mental health and wellbeing – Mr Mark Edwards, Ms Monika Kolta, and introducing Ms Jen Riches!

We have an amazing team of GPs and doctors here at PartridgeGP! Dr Ciara Peddell (pronounced Kee-Ra, like the actress) has started, Dr Abby Mudford is continuing, Dr Elias Salagaras is starting, Dr Katherine Astill is returning, and Specialist Urology Services with Dr Nick Brook and the team from EastWest Urology are here now.

Our newer GPs and Registrars back up our more established GPs. Perhaps the injection of fresh faces, fresh minds, and fresh thinking give us an edge. Perhaps the better team will just win. The better team. PartridgeGP is founded on you having your own great GP, and we will always endeavour to have you see your own great GP. When this isn’t possible, when your GP is away, or when you need to be seen at short notice, isn’t it awesome that ALL of the GPs here take comprehensive notes, share information, and practice with the same ethos. You get the best of both worlds – the care, attention, and relationship with YOUR GP, and the benefits of our medical and nursing team as a backup and a bonus.

We pride ourselves on our teamwork, people, and culture and we’re ready to share our professional skills and knowledge with you. This is only MORE important now, in the time of a global pandemic with a new vaccine on the horizon. The way forward is clear: make your appointment with us conveniently online right here – or call our friendly reception team on 82953200.

Take the next steps!

For everyone, we believe that having a usual GP or General Practice is central to each person’s care and recommend that people with any health issues that come to the attention of other health professionals should be advised to attend their usual GP or General Practice rather than a specialised service (ie a place not providing the holistic care a specialist GP would).   If  they say that they don’t have a usual GP or general practice, they should be helped to find one and to actually attend it. Call PartridgeGP on 82953200 or make an appointment online here.

(TL;DR – Get a regular GP or General Practice and use them!)
