Dr Avula currently has a medical scribe working alongside him. A medical scribe is a non-clinical role. The scribe will record consultation notes and manage any paperwork generated during your consultation, effectively working as a Personal Assistant to the GP. The work of the scribe is checked by Dr Avula for accuracy. If you do not wish for the scribe to present during your consultation please make reception or Dr Avula aware.
It is now a requirement that all patients have a named GP. The named GP will be responsible for co-ordinating all services relating to your care. This change will not affect the way in which you book appointments and you will still have a choice as to which GP you see.
Unless previously informed otherwise, your named GP will be:
- Patients with a surname beginning A to L: Dr Mark Adams
- Patients with a surname beginning M to Z: Dr Raj Avula
Publication of GP Earnings
It is a contractual requirement for practices to publish their mean average earnings for 2017/2018.
The calculation excludes certain types of income and the rules are complex and open to interpretation.
Full time GP’s are defined in the guidance as working eight sessions or more. The number of GP’s includes salaried GP’s and locums who worked full or part time for 6 months or more.
The required disclosure for Western Avenue Medical Centre 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 make any comparison with any other practice.
All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.
The average pay for GPs working in Western Avenue Medical Centre in the last financial year was £81,609 before tax and National Insurance. This is 3 part time GPs who worked in the practice for more than six months.
