Noticeboard

You may be aware that Jeremy Hunt, Health and Social Care secretary, has confirmed a failure of IT dating back to 2009 which resulted in 450,000 women, who were between their 68th and 71st birthday, not being invited to their final breast screening.

NHS England will contact any patients affected by this issue will receive a letter by the end of May.

Those who are aged under 72 will automatically receive an invite for a catch-up screen

– Patients aged between 72 and 79 will also be sent information on how they can request a screening appointment through the national helpline

– All women affected who wish to have a breast screen will receive an appointment before the end of October 2018

– Women who have not received a letter by the end of May can be reassured they have not been affected by the incident

All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (e.g. average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.

NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice is publicised by 31 March 2018 at the latest.  However, it should be noted that the prescribed method of 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 with other practices.

The average pay for GPs working at the Lambert Medical Centre in the last financial year was £66,102 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 9 part time GPs.
