We are a large general practice with 8 GP Partners assisted by salaried GPs and GP Registrar(s) at the east coast of Lincolnshire. Our Primary Health Care team includes Practice Nurses, Community Midwives, Health Care Assistants, Practice Manager, It & Data Quality Manager, Operations Manager, a team of Receptionists, Dispensers and Administrative Staff. We are committed to providing all our patients with the best possible healthcare. This is achieved by working together as a team and with you as a partner in the care you receive. We aim to provide high quality family medicine in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
Beacon Medical Practice formed on the 1st April 1998 as the result of the amalgamation of the 7 partner Parkside Surgery in Skegness and the 3 partner Chapel Surgery in Chapel St Leonards. The practice now has 9 Partners and 5 Clinical Practitioners in order to address the demands of an expanding practice population and to help deliver innovative services in line with practice philosophy.
The Practice has its main surgery in the seaside town of Skegness with branch surgeries in the nearby villages of Chapel St Leonards and Ingoldmells. Our Practice area covers approximately a 10 mile radius centred on Skegness, including of course Skegness, Ingoldmells, Chapel St Leonards and surrounding villages at the east coast of Lincolnshire.
Beacon Medical Practice is an approved GP Teaching Practice. Dr J S Chaggar trains GP Registrars, who are fully qualified Doctors. They already have had several years’ work experience in hospitals and will be gaining further experience required to become a General Practitioner. You may be offered an appointment with our registrar doctor. We would encourage you to see the registrar. By having a registrar train with us, we often find that they bring with them a fresh approach to medicine since they are often very up-to-date with current treatments.
You may also be asked for permission for a student or trainee doctor to sit in your consultation with your Doctor or Nurse. In addition, your consultations may be video-taped for teaching purposes. This is entirely a patient choice and it is absolutely no problem if you decide not to be video-taped. Any video consultation is subject to the strictest confidence. You always will be asked to give verbal or written consent to this well before the start of your consultation. If you prefer to be seen alone, they will leave. This, of course, is absolutely acceptable and please, be reassured that whichever your decision, the care we will be providing to you will not be affected at any time.
