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.

Summary Care Record

summary care recordThere is a new Central NHS Computer System called the Summary Care Record (SCR). The Summary Care Record is meant to help emergency doctors and nurses help you when you contact them when the surgery is closed. Initially, it will contain just your medications and allergies.

Later on as the central NHS computer system develops, (known as the ‘Summary Care Record’ – SCR), other staff who work in the NHS will be able to access it along with information from hospitals, out of hours services, and specialists letters that may be added as well.

Your information will be extracted from practices such as ours and held on central NHS databases.   

As with all new systems there are pros and cons to think about. When you speak to an emergency doctor you might overlook something that is important and if they have access to your medical record it might avoid mistakes or problems, although even then, you should be asked to give your consent each time a member of NHS Staff wishes to access your record, unless you are medically unable to do so.

On the other hand, you may have strong views about sharing your personal information and wish to keep your information at the level of this practice. Connecting for Health (CfH), the government agency responsible for the Summary Care Record have agreed with doctors’ leaders that new patients registering with this practice should be able to decide whether or not their information is uploaded to the Central NHS Computer System.

For existing patients it is different in that it is assumed that you want your record uploaded to the Central NHS Computer System unless you actively opt out.

If you choose to opt out of the scheme, then you will need to complete a form and bring it along to the surgery.
