GP Publication of Earnings

Report for Publication:
NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice is 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, nor to makeany comparison with any other practice.

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.

The average pay for GPs working in Hereward Group Practice during the year ended 31st March 2018 was £ 73,665
before tax and national insurance. This is for 1 full time GPs and 8 part time GPs
who worked in the practice for more than 6 months.

Around now, local eligible female patients will be receiving invites for breast screening taking place between April and May in Bourne.

A screening mammogram is an x-ray of the breasts for women who have not noticed any symptoms or changes in their breasts. Screening mammograms usually involve two x-ray pictures of each breast.

The x-ray pictures can find cancers as small as a grain of rice before you or your doctor can feel any changes in your breasts.

When breast cancer is found early, most women will get better and get back to their normal lives.

This is because breast cancer treatment works best when the cancer is still small and has not spread outside the breast to other parts of the body.

If your cancer is picked up by Breast Screening you are almost half as likely to need a mastectomy.
