We aim to maintain and improve the quality, quantity and effectiveness of services to our patients, providing access to a high standard and comprehensive primary health care.
We aim to improve the quality of life of our patients by providing screening, education and promotion of good health allowing patients to influence their own future. Our fully computerised service will provide a regular recall system for all preventative care and aid evaluation of all aspects of health care.
We shall continually assess our service making innovative changes in response to patients needs and views our aim is to improve the quality and range of our services to reduce reliance on secondary care eg hospital and community care, but when this is needed, to ensure adequate and improved access to these services.
We shall ensure that the elderly and disadvantaged receive the community and health care needed to maximise their ability to remain independent preferably in their own homes.
These services will be delivered by the primary health care team of doctors, health visitors, nurses and surgery staff. They will communicate at regular team meetings and are supported by practice policy and protocols. Requirements of the primary health care team for rest, recuperation and education are of prime importance and contribute to the satisfactory running of the practice as a whole.
If patients require the use of an interpreter, this can be arranged. This service may be conducted in person or by telephone. Please note it can take up to a week to find a suitable interpreter, so please contact us in plenty of time if this service is required.
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 make any 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 Woodbrook Medical Centre during the year ended 31 March 2022 was £68,520 before tax and national insurance. This is for 0 full time GPs, 7 part time GPs and 2 locum GPs who worked in the practice for more than 6 months.
