NOTICE TO PATIENTS – Clinical Letter Communication Failure – For information only!

Notice to patients – Clinical Letter Communication Failure – For information only!
 
We recently suffered a document system error caused by a fault in the IT systems software which resulted in a backlog of a number of hospital discharge summary letters, safeguarding reports and MARAC reports. This means that letters which are usually forward electronically to the GP in a timely manner have instead been stored on the system for a longer period of time. All of the letters have since been reviewed and there were no incidents of harm to any patients as a result of this.  Approximately 60 letters/patients were included. If there had been any issues our first priority would have been to contact individuals, however if you have been waiting for follow up care and are at all concerned that your letter has been missed please contact us for investigation

GP Net Earnings

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 for any judgement about GP earnings, nor to make any comparisons with other practices.

The average earnings for GPs working in the Oxford Terrace and Rawling Road Medical Group in the last financial year was £76,965 before taxation and National Insurance. This is for 11 part time GPs who worked in the practice for more than 6 months.
