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

The Average pay for two part time doctors working in Avenue Medical Practice in the last financial year before tax and insurance was £45,339.

Patient Information About Chaperones

Patients including children and young people are free to have a chaperone present for any consultation examination or procedure. The chaperone will be a member of clinical staff or a specifically trained member of non-clinical staff. The purpose of the chaperone is to safeguard both the patient and the examining clinician and ensures that any clinical interaction is conducted appropriately.

Prior to any clinical interaction requiring a chaperon the clinician will give a full explanation of the protocol. Please ask any questions if you are uncertain about giving consent. You may also decline to have a chaperon present.

Please ask for a chaperone at the time of booking your appointment. Sometimes the need for a chaperone may arise during a consultation. We will try to provide a chaperone immediately but occasionally the appointment will need to be rescheduled.

The doctor or nurse may require a chaperone to be present for some consultations.

If you would like to see a copy of our chaperone policy or you have any questions or comments, please contact the Practice Manager.

The NHS in England is using an electronic record called the Summary Care Record (SCR) to support patient care. The Summary Care Record is a copy of key information from your GP record. It provides authorised healthcare staff with faster, secure access to essential information about you when you need unplanned care or when your GP practice is closed. Summary Care Records improve the safety and quality of your care.
