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

The average pay for GPs working in The University Surgery in the last financial year was £165,763 before tax and National insurance. This is for 2 full time GPs and 2 part time GPs. 

NHS England requires that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice is publicised by 31st March 2017 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.

Diabetes

diabetes word cloudDiabetes is a long-term (chronic) condition caused by too much glucose (sugar) in the blood. It is also known as diabetes mellitus. There are two types of diabetes - type 1 and type 2.

According to the charity Diabetes UK, more than two million people in the UK have the condition and up to 750,000 more are believed to have it without realising they do.

More than three-quarters of people with diabetes have type 2 diabetes mellitus. This used to be known as non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) or maturity-onset diabetes mellitus. The number of people with type 2 diabetes is rapidly increasing as it commoner in the overweight and obese, which is itself a growing problem.

The remainder have type 1 diabetes mellitus, which used to be known as insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus.

What's the treatment for diabetes?

It's recognised that the sooner the blood sugar levels are brought under control, the better the long term prospects of preventing damage. Lifestyle advice about diet, weight management and regular activity is the first step.

Type 1 diabetes will require immediate insulin therapy, Type 2 diabetes will first be managed with a drug called Metformin, if lifestyle changes alone aren't effective. There are now several other drugs used in type 2 diabetes, although eventually some type 2 diabetics will need insulin therapy as it's a progressive disease
