Patient Online Services - April 2016
Dyneley House Surgery has offered patients’ facilities to book appointments and order their repeat prescriptions ‘on-line’ since 2011.
From 1 April, we are able to offer patients the facility to view information from their medical record.
Please ask at Reception about the process of registering to be able to access this facility.
NHS Friends & Family Test
We welcome your feedback and would be really pleased if you can spare a few minutes to complete the new NHS Friends & Family Test. You can find the survey in the 'Have your say' section on the homepage of the website.
Named Accountable GP
From the 1 April 2015, under the terms and conditions of the General Medical Services Contract, the Practice is required to allocate a named, accountable GP to all registered patients.
If you wish to know who your allocated GP is, or have a preference as to which GP you are allocated, please contact Reception.
These new arrangements do not prevent you making an appointment or seeing any GP at the Practice as patients have always been able to.
From April 2016, all doctors’ practices are required to declare the mean earnings (average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients.
The average pay for GPs working in Dyneley House Surgery in the last financial year was £67,250 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 2 full time GPs, 8 part time GPs and 0 locum GPs who worked in the practice for more than six months.”
NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the Practice are publicised and the required disclosure is shown above. 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.
Accessible Information Standard - Making Health & Social Care Information Accessible
The Accessible Information Standard will come into force from 31 July 2016 across health and social care in England. Our aim is to make sure disabled people have access to information that they can understand and any communication support they might need.
You can find out more by reading this guide in easy words and pictures. You can also watch a video in British Sign Language (BSL) or listen to an audio recording.
We are currently working towards the standard. The first thing we need to do is identify those people with information and communication needs. Please help us to do this.
Let us know if you have a disability, impairment or sensory loss, and the kind of information and communication support that you need.
We will record this on your medical records. This will help us to be prepared the next time you use our services. Please ask a member of the Practice Team if you need any further information or assistance.
