Health Intelligence - Retinopathy and your Data

Medication Requests for Christmas period

That time of year is coming around again and as well as making sure you've got those last minute presents sorted it is important to ensure you don't run out of your medications over the Christmas period.

We will be doing all we can to ensure you don't run out over that period but please can we ask that you make sure your requests for medications over that period are with us no later than 19th December.

This will allow us time to ensure you have what you need for the festive period.

Regards

Dr Fellows, Crisp and Collie

CQC audit - report available now

It is with great pleasure that we can announce that the Care Quality Commission (CQC) have completed their audit of the practice and have rated us GOOD in all areas.

This is an excellent achievement and we are very proud of the result. As always we will strive to be even better going forward during an ever changing NHS environment but we will always do our utmost to ensure the patient remains at the center of all we do.

COMPLAINTS AND FEEDBACK REVIEW CLINICS

We are always very keen to hear the views of our patients and services users and their families. We are planning to run a session regularly to give you the opportunity to come along and talk to a member of the Management team and the Chair of our Patient Participation Group (PPG), giving you the opportunity to talk to us about our services.

The Chair of the PPG is bound by confidentiality but if you prefer that she does not take part in the discussion please just let us know.

You will be able to book this directly in ½ hour slots if you have online access, or call/attend the surgery to ask a member of staff to book you into this.

We are aiming for the first of these sessions to take place on Tuesday 24th July 2018 between midday and 1.00pm.

I look forward to meeting you and hearing your views and thoughts.

GP Earnings

The average pay for GPs working in East Shore Partnership in the last financial year was £38,556 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 7 part time GPs who worked in the practice for more than six months.

“NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice is publicised by 31 March 2018 at the latest. However, it should be noted that the prescribed method of calculating earnings is potentially misleading because it takes no account of how much time doctors spend working in the practice and should not be used for any judgement about GP earnings, nor to make any comparisons with other practices.”
