Electronic Data Sharing Model
The practice has recently changed its policy with regards to the sharing of patient information with other NHS services. Full details can be found on the New Patients page.
In accordance with the practice's contractual obligations, we can now publish the mean income of each of our G.P.s from public sources for the financial year 2014-15. Bawtry and Blyth Medical has 2 full time G.P. partners and one part-time salaried G.P. Our core income comes from the N.H.S. and for the financial year 2014-15 amounted to a mean of £45,724 per G.P.
Named Accountable G.P.
All patients registered with Bawtry and Blyth Medical now have a named accountable G.P. This will be either Dr Andrew L. Perkins or Dr Dorothy J. Thomas. If you wish to know who your Named Accountable G.P. is, please feel free to contact the surgery.
Bassetlaw Telehealth Services
From April 2014, Bassetlaw Telehealth Services (covering Care Navigation, Health Coaching and Telehealth) is available for all people registered with a GP in Bassetlaw. This is a free telephone based service led by a dedicated team of nurses, which is quick, easy and convenient to use.
The service is aimed at local people who have been newly diagnosed with a long term health condition and also for those who have been living with their condition for some time.
Three different types of telephone based care are provided to help benefit local patients:
• Advice and information
• Health coaching and behaviour change
• Observing and monitoring a long term condition
Further information regarding the service is available on the NHS Bassetlaw Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) website via the following link www.bassetlawccg.nhs.uk/patient-information/take-control.
A brief film has also been produced regarding the local service which showcases inspiring stories from local people who have used and benefitted from the service during the pilot phase. This can be viewed via the following link to our YouTube channel - Bassetlaw Telehealth Pilot.
