GOOD CQC RATING:
WE HAVE BEEN AWARDED A "GOOD" CQC RESULT IN ALL 5 CATEGORIES OF BEING: SAFE, EFFECTIVE, CARING, RESPONSIVE AND WELL-LED.
PLEASE SEE THE FULL REPORT HERE:
NEW COMPUTER SYSTEM:
We will soon be switching to our new patient clinical computer system and 'go live' with it on Tuesday, 21st June. On this day, clinics will not start until 11.00 a.m. in order for the engineers to make final adjustments as we switch on the new system. The surgery, however, will be open from 8.30 a.m. as normal and we will still be taking telephone calls.
We are making every effort to minimise disruption to our patients during this time but do understand any frustrations for patients at not being able to book appointments until we are able to open the new appointment books. Please bear with us during this period.
PATIENT ONLINE ACCESS: If you have already registered for a 'My Vision' Online access account, you will be required to re-register for a new EMIS Web online patient access account and details will appear here and in the surgery soon.
PLEASE NOTE: patients will not be able to register for an online account with effect from 1st June 2016 until we have switched over to the new patient clinical system week commencing 21st June 2016.
The doctors and staff at Clarence Medical Centre are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare. We run clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes and offer a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups. In addition to everything you need to know about the practice you will also find a wealth of health-related information in the menu on the right hand side. Please have a look around and do send us some feedback if you like.

GP EARNINGS DECLARATION
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 as 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.
The average earnings for GPs working in Clarence Medical Centre in the last financial year was £70,648.00 before tax and national insurance. This is for 3 x full time GPs, 4 x part-time GPs and 3 x part-time locum GPs who worked in the practice for more than six months.
