GDPR Privacy Note
We understand how important it is to keep your personal information safe and secure and we take this very seriously. We have taken steps to make sure your personal information is looked after in the best possible way and we review this regularly.
Please read this Privacy Notice carefully, as it contains important information about how we use the personal and healthcare information we collect on your behalf.
We have completed the GP Net Earnings calculation for 2021/2022 for Whitmore Reans Health Centre, and the below is required to be published on the Surgery website.
All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (eg average pay) for GP’s working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.
“The average pay for GPs working in Whitmore Reans Health Centre in the last financial year was £46,287 before tax and national insurance. This is for 4 full time GPs and 2 part time GPs who worked in the practice for more than six months.”
The practice participates in the training of doctors pursuing a career in general practice. These doctors are fully qualified and may have several years’ experience in hospital medicine. Whilst they are with us we like them to participate fully in the medical care offered by the practice. We value our training status and the contribution that these doctors make to the practice.
Please be informed that each patient has an allocated named GP at the Practice. Please ring your branch practice to find out who is your named GP.
All patients over 75 years of age have a named GP and any calls or requests from the over 75’s are prioritised and triaged on the same day.
