Healthcare in Milton Keynes
NPMC is proud to tell you about the role one of our GP Partners is playing in designing and managing healthcare across the city. They are doing this through their position as elected board members on Milton Keynes Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).
How does Milton Keynes CCG commission services?
They do this through commissioning changes to local health services by working through programme boards charged to:
- Maintain and improve quality
- Keep tight financial control
- Deliver on the quality & productivity challenge
- Give momentum for transition and reform
Dr Tayo Kufeji is the elected board member for Maternity and Children's services. The plans for this area are based on the principles of delivering quality services that provide demonstrable value for money. The focus will be on procuring services against outcome measures and benchmarking services with best practice in comparable areas. The care pathways designed will reflect the intent to avoid admission to hospital and to provide support and advice to allow children to be cared for in the community, or close to home; advocating care that reduces interventions where appropriate, such as normalising birth and reducing unnecessary paediatric admissions. There is a focus on prevention and providing universal, accessible services with targeted care appropriate to the needs of the individual
How can you get involved:
Patients can get involved by enquiring about our Patient Reference Group. This group helps us shape our services by answering questionnaires on our service electronically. To join please pick up a registration form from the Medical Centre or select patient participation group from the right hand menu side of the page and click on the link patient reference group.
Requirement by NHS England
“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. It should not be used to form any judgement about GP earnings, nor to make any comparison with any other Practice.
The mean earnings (e.g. average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at Newport Pagnell Medical Centre in the last financial year was £77,743 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 5 full time GPs, 6 part time GPs and 1 locum GP who worked in the practice for more than six months”.
