Patient Participation Group (PPG) Fund Raising
The PPG wish to raise funds for the surgery to go towards purchasing equipment such as a defibrillator that can be used for our patients. The donation box in the waiting areas will be managed by the PPG.
Publication of GP Mean Earnings
All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice. The average pay for GPs working in Scott Park Surgery in the last financial year was £36,610 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 1 full-time GP, and 1 locum GP who worked in the practice for more than six months.
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 judgment about GP earnings, or to make any comparison with any other practice.
