We are very pleased to announce that on 1st July 2018 Shelford Medical Practice merged with Granta Medical Practices. Once the computer systems merge (scheduled for the beginning of September), all Granta patients can take advantage of the benefits that come with the addition of another practice, including a wider choice of appointments and another choice of venue.

We welcome the Shelford staff and patients and look forward to continually improving health care for all of our patients

We are very grateful to local GP Dr Mig Arbide for his generous recent fundraising, supported by so many patients and colleagues in the local community. We are delighted to be able to use this funding to conduct a new research study aiming to help GPs spot possible melanoma (the serious skin cancer) at an early stage. The study is surveying GPs and practice nurses across the UK about their use of dermoscopy. A dermatoscope is an instrument that allows magnification and improved lighting of the skin and skin lesions to enable more accurate diagnosis.

While there is not yet sufficient evidence for safe use of dermoscopy by GPs, many expert dermatologists feel that, with training, this will be a useful diagnostic aid for GPs and practice nurses. We have already completed a number of research studies looking at how to help diagnose melanoma earlier (the MoleMate and MelaTools studies); this new study will add to our knowledge in this area, and help to improve the early diagnosis of melanoma.

From April 2015 all patients, including children, must be allocated a named, accountable GP who takes responsibility to oversee the delivery of care. Although this is a new requirement in the GP contract, we have always allocated patients to a named GP.

Patients can and should feel free to choose to see any of the GPs in the practice in line with current arrangements.
