NAMED AND ACCOUNTABLE GP FOR ALL PATIENTS

AN ACCOUNTABLE GP TAKES RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE CO-ORDINATION OF ALL APPROPRIATE SERVICES UNDER THEIR PMS CONTRACT AND ENSURE THEY ARE DELIVERED TO EACH OF THEIR PATIENTS WHERE REQUIRED.  THE ACCOUNTABLE GPs FOR THE PATIENTS OF THE UNIVERSITY SURGERY ARE DR ANNE LAWSON AND DR DAPO ALALADE - WHO YOU ARE REGISTERED WITH.

EARNINGS DISCLOSURE - (updated 26th March 2018)

The average pay for GPs working in The University Surgery in the last financial year was £169,300 before tax and National insurance. This is for 2 full time GPs and 2 part time GPs and 1 locum who worked in the practice for more than six months. 

NHS England requires that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice is publicised by 31st 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 make any comparisons with other practices.

Decision aids

NHS Direct Patient Decision Aids (PDAs) are designed to help patients make difficult decisions about their treatments and medical tests. They are used when there is no clinical evidence to suggest that one treatment is better than another and patients need help in deciding which option will be best for them.

Mens' Health

Five health symptoms men should not ignore

According to NHS Choices:

"British men are paying the price for neglecting their health: more than 100,000 men a year die prematurely.

On average, men go to their GP half as often as women. It's important to be aware of changes to your health, and to see your GP immediately if you notice something that's not right." Find out more

Testicular Cancer

Testicular cancer, though the most common cancer in young men, it is still quite rare. With 2000 new cases being diagnosed each year, this makes it the biggest cause of cancer related death in 15 - 35-year-old males. It accounts for around 70 deaths a year within the UK alone.

What to Look Out For

The most common symptom of testicular cancer is swelling or a pea- sized lump in one of the testes (balls). There is no current screening test therefore it is important that you look out for the following signs and symptoms.

  • A dull ache, or sharp pain, in your testicles, or scrotum, which may come and go
  • A feeling of heaviness in your scrotum
  • A dull ache in your lower abdomen
  • A sudden collection of fluid in your scrotum
  • Fatigue, and generally feeling unwell.
