GP Earnings

“NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice is publicised by 31 March 2016 at the latest. However, it should be noted that the prescribed method of 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 for any judgement about GP earnings, nor to make any comparisons with other practices.” The average pay for GPs working in Binscombe Medical Centre in the last financial year was £72,053 before tax and National Insurance, employee pension costs and practice expenses. This is for 4 full time GPs and 5 part time GPs.

Our CQC report has been published

Following our CQC inspection on 5th January we are delighted to announce that we have been rated as Outstanding overall, with particular emphasis on being caring and well-led. We would like to thank all our patients who took time to give their feedback to the inspectors, and all the staff for being part such a positive team; the inspectors particularly gave us feedback on how enthusiastic every one was at the practice and how each person clearly enjoyed working at Binscombe. Being rated as outstanding has been a huge boost to the practice, but is also a real challenge to live up to. We know that we do not always get things right and can always improve, and we shall continue to try to do so,
