Changes to Repeat Prescription Ordering

****

NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice is publicised, and the required disclosure is shown below. However it should be noted that the prescribed method for 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 to form any judgement about GP earnings, nor to make any comparison with any other practice.

 

All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (e.g. average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.

 

The average pay for GPs working in this practice in the last full financial year was £54,966 before Tax and National insurance. This is for 1 full time GP, 2 part time GPs and 5 locum GPs who worked in the practice for more than six months.

 

 

Training practicegp_and_book

Middle Chare medical Group is a training practice helping recruitment of quaility GPs into the practice. There will usually be one or two qualified doctors working in the practice who are training to specialise in general practice.

Registrar Training

We normally have one registrar in the practice at any one time.

Registrars are fully qualified doctors who are gaining more experience, under supervision in order to obtain accreditation as independent GPs. In order to gain as much different experience as possible, they usually only remain at a practice for six months at a time.

From time to time they may request your permission to video their consultation with you. This may be for training purposes or to prove to the accrediting body that they are ready to become GPs. You have the right to refuse permission at any time - it will not affect your care in any way.

This is a valuable training tool (frequently used by the regular doctors for continuing professional development.) The videos remain strictly confidential and are only seen by GPs within the practice or by examiners; they are destroyed after use.

Medical Student Teaching

We are involved in the teaching of medical students from the University of Northumbria

Occasionally we may ask patients if they would be kind enough to help the teaching by speaking to the students about their experience of their illness.

From time to time, students sit in with a doctor during surgery, but you will always be told if a doctor has a student sitting in with them and you have the right to ask to see the doctor without the student present.

Simply let the receptionists know prior to your appointment. Your care will not be affected in any way.
