Dr Duenas is retiring at the end of April 2023
Dr Manel Duenas has been a GP Partner at The Willerby & Swanland Practice, caring for patients and being an integral member of our practice team for nearly 22 years.
It is with mixed feelings that we would like to announce that he will be retiring from his role at the end of April 2023.
Dr Duenas will be missed for his caring and compassionate nature, hard work and dedication to his career. His colleagues will miss his fun-loving personality, a genuine lovely person to work alongside.
We all wish Dr Duenas a long and happy retirement and hope that he will enjoy his new adventures, a very well-earned retirement.
All patients on the list for Dr Duenas will be moved to the other Partners list at the Practice. We assure you that you will continue to receive the same high level of care from the Practice team moving forward.
We are currently in the process of recruiting to replace the Clinical provision provided by Dr Duenas. We are looking at introducing a Nurse Practitioner role hoping that this will help futureproof the recruitment needs of the Practice. We will keep you informed of our progress.
Our Administration and Support Team
Supporting the clinicians is a dedicated team of staff who take on a variety of administrative roles. They are led by a Patient Services Manager.
Ensuring the smooth operation of the practice, a team of 10 Receptionists cover the office opening hours.
The reception team is available from 8.00am to 6.00pm - including lunch times - Monday to Friday.
The reception team book appointments, arrive patients, answer queries and manage repeat prescription requests.
They are trained and required to field telephone calls for clinicians, pass on test results and generally signpost patient queries to the appropriate person or organisation.
Our team of secretaries cover each morning from 8.00am to 12.00noon and between them field calls and queries for the doctors as well as dealing with all correspondence (in and out), maintaining home visit requests and tracking patient referrals.
Health Promotion and Data Input
Other key support roles are in administration and health promotion. There is a massive amount of data - electronic and paper - which has to be organised and processed. This includes ensuring new patients registrations are managed, clinical notes are prepared, recall clinics are arranged and relevant data is scanned and coded to patient records.
Most of the correspondence received about patients from other healthcare providers is read, actioned and then captured to individual patient notes.
These functions are managed by a data-input team.
