PATIENT MESSAGE: Patient Access Survey
Your local NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) in Worcestershire are seeking the views of local patients on how additional appointments at GP surgeries should develop over the coming years. As part of a national initiative, we want to look at how we can improve access to healthcare by offering routine appointments (urgent appointments are not included in this) outside of the core hours currently offered on weekdays (8:00am to 6.30pm), and the local need for routine appointments at weekends. A high-level plan has been laid out in NHS England’s GP Forward View, issued in 2016, to deliver and extend effective access to out of hours and urgent care services locally.
There is a national and local shortage of GPs and other clinicians who work in general practice. This means that the additional services may be provided at a venue other than your own surgery and that you may not see your own GP or even a GP from your usual practice. Should that GP need to access your medical records, your consent would be sought.
In deciding what level of improved access to GP services is needed for the local population, the CCGs will consider the responses to this survey alongside evidence of GP and other clinical personnel, how GP appointments are currently used, and levels of usage of other services during extended access periods, such as GP Out of Hours services, A&E / Minor Injury Units and NHS 111.
If you are moving outside the area you will need to register with another practice.
In addition to the practice’s normal opening hours, and additional surgery opening times as stated above, you can also book an appointment to see a local clinician in the evenings or on Saturday and Sunday at locations across Redditch and Bromsgrove.
GP practices are working together to provide extended access appointments to our patients. This means that your extended access appointment may be with a different GP, nurse or based in a different location or practice than you are used to, and some of these appointments are telephone only.
These appointments are pre-bookable by contacting the surgery during our opening times – when calling please ask for an extended access appointment and our receptionists will help you to find a convenient appointment.
Access to the surgery
The surgery provides a disabled access and a disabled patients WC is also available within the Surgery.
The practice premises is situated adjacent to the bus lane, providing easy access from public transport
There is a large shoppers car park a short walk from the Surgery premises, with some disabled badge holder spaces.
GP Mean Earnings
NHS England requires that net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice are 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, or to make any comparison with any other practice.
All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (average Pay) for GP’s working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.
The average pay for GP’s working in St Stephens Surgery and our associated practice Maple View Medical Centre in the last financial year 2016/17 was £51,875 before tax and National Insurance. This is for a 6 full-time GP’s, 8 part-time GP’s, and 3 locum GP’s who worked in the practice for more than 6 months.
