Proud of our Practice: 'It's all down to teamwork'

Sydenham House Group practice is on a mission to improve sexual health services in Hull.

Its latest project is a text messaging service offering access to sexual health advice. Confidential Text is primarily aimed at teenagers and young women who value the extra confidentiality.

Dr Susan Lovett, centre front, one of four GPs at the practice, has also taken on sexual health services for other local surgeries.

A further move by the practice to help its patients and the wider community has been to tell the appointments centre at the hospital trust when a patient dies to save relatives getting letters.

Dr Lovett said the success of the practice, which had the highest QOF score in Hull, was down to having a dedicated team and working in close proximity with hospital and PCT staff.

She said: 'By taking pride in our practice and showing how well we work as a team we are helping our community.'
