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.

Long Term Conditions

Asthma

Asthma

asthmaAsthma is a common condition that causes coughing, wheezing, tightness of the chest and breathlessness. Most people with asthma who take the appropriate treatment can live normal lives, but left untreated, asthma can cause permanent damage to the airways

Symptoms of asthma

The usual symptoms of asthma are

  • coughing
  • wheezing
  • shortness of breath
  • tightness in the chest.

Not everyone will get all of these symptoms. Some people experience them from time to time; a few people may experience these symptoms all the time.

Treatment of asthma

There isn't a cure for asthma. However, treatments are available to help manage your symptoms. Your treatment plan will be individual to you, combining medicines and asthma management in a way that works best for you

Living with asthma

Medicines are only part of your treatment for asthma. You will also need to deal with the things that make it worse. Keep a diary to record anything that triggers your asthma - this can help you to discover a pattern. Using a peak flow meter to monitor your lung function can also help. If you have repeatedly low readings in a certain situation (for example, at the end of a working day, after exercise or after contact with an animal) this may indicate the trigger.
