General Practice Hub: evening and weekend appointments now available

 

Patients who are registered at this practice can now book an appointment to see a GP or nurse on weekday evenings (after 6.30pm) or at the weekends (on Saturday and Sunday) and can be booked up to one week ahead. Appointments take place at the GP Hub, King Edward VII Hospital although may occasionally be offered for St Marks Hospital, Maidnhead.  Please book these appointments in the usual way through our Reception team.

 

The Clinicians you see will have the same access to your medical records as clinicians at here at the Practice.

These appointments are for routine general practice issues only and not for urgent care.  If urgent care is required outside of our opening times please call 111 for advice.

GDPR - General Data Protection Regulation

Please see below details on GDPR, and links that comply with these new laws.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect in the UK on 25 May 2018. The GDPR and the forthcoming Data Protection Act (DPA) 2018, which has yet to be finalised, will replace the current Data Protection Act.

What is the GDPR?

The GDPR was designed to harmonise data privacy laws across Europe. The aim is to protect citizens from privacy and data breaches.

The current DPA dates from the 1990s when organisations held much less data on individuals. As the amount of data held has increased and technology has advanced, so has the risk of cyber crime and data breaches. The GDPR aims to address gaps in current legislation by providing a framework with greater scope and tougher punishments for those who fail to comply.

The key principles of the current DPA remain unchanged, but some areas of legislation have been strengthened.

Like the DPA, the GDPR applies to ‘controllers’ and ‘processors’ of data – a controller says how and why personal data is processed and the processor acts on the controller’s behalf. Practices are data controllers.

Funding for Community Space

Lions Den

On Monday 11th December, Dr Kirstin Ostle and Administrator Robbie Tomlinson pitched to the Windsor Lions charity club to earn a grant to furnish the newly built community space on the ground floor of Dedworth Medical Centre.

They were successful and earned a grant of £2,000, which will allow the new space to be made welcoming with tables and practical items like painting easels for art groups.

Publication of GP Earnings

NHS England require that the average net earnings of GP working in the Practice to deliver NHS services publicised and the required disclosure is shown below.  However, it should be noted that the prescribed method for calculating earnings is potentially misleading as it takes no account of how much time GPs 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 Practices.

Average Pay for GPs working in South Meadow Surgery in the last financial year was £82,766 before tax and National Insurance. This is 2 full time GPs, 8 part time GPs and 1 locum who worked in the practice for more than 6 months.
