As highlighted in the media, GP practices are experiencing a high demand on their services resulting in difficulties in getting through on the phone lines.

 

We would like to reassure you we have been working throughout the COVID crisis and continue to review processes to improve our services.

 

The increase in calls is unprecedented and we apologise to those who have had problems getting through.

 

We are currently working with our phone system provider to see if we can improve the system to meet the needs of our patients.

 

We have also created capacity through eConsult and encourage our patients to use this through the practice website as an alternate method to contact us.  This will enable us to respond to patients in a timely manner and should also enable the phone lines to become more free.

 

We understand your frustration but again would like to reassure you that we have continued to work through the Pandemic, but in a different way, requiring triage prior to appointment, to keep patients and staff safe.  We are undertaking  regular reviews to improve and adopt our services to the ongoing changes.

GP Net Earnings

EAST COWES MEDICAL CENTRE

 

Publication of GP net earnings 2019-20

 

 

NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice to be published, 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 (eg average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.

 

The average pay for GPs working in East Cowes Health Centre in the last financial year was £68,411 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 3 part time GPs and 2 locum GPs who worked in the practice for more than six months.
