NHS England requires that net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice are 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 to form any judgement about GP earnings, or to make any comparison with any other practice.
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 Penketh Health Centre in the last financial year was £66,019 before tax and national insurance.
This is for the 8 part time GPs who worked at the practice.
We are very proud to be a training practice and we currently have 2 GP Registrars, Dr Heather Maher and Dr Christopher Henderson. They are qualified Doctors who will be with us during the next 12mths to further their experience of General Practice and complete their GP training.
Dr Hastings and Dr Powell are currently on maternity leave.
We are currently recruiting for another GP and ask that you bear with us until we can appoint another new GP.
|A health visitor is a registered nurse who has received training particularly related to babies, children and pregnant women. Their role is to provide families with children under five years old with support and advice around the general aspects of mental, physical and social wellbeing.|
We have a well-equipped treatment room, staffed by a team of dedicated and experienced district nurses. The nurses perform an invaluable function in the community, providing continuity of care to those patients who are unable to come to the surgery because of their medical condition. In addition we have a team of health visitors, school health advisors and midwives attached to the practice. Together, these disciplines offer a considerable level of expertise to the community.
The practice also offers the services of a dietician, a chiropodist, a physiotherapist, a smoking cessation advisor, a mental health care team and an alcohol dependency counsellor. Your doctor can advise you on the procedure for making use of these services.
