The practice has grown in size over the last few years from 9,000 to 17,500. The practice building project was completed at the end of 2009 and .The extra demand on space due to the expansion in clinical activity had left the existing building that seemed so spacious in 1996, too small for our needs. We have addressed this with a major building expansion on the land adjacent to our practice. Finally we have a building with the facilities to meet the needs of the 21st century! There is even some space for expansion and at last we have an education facility where teaching can take place in comfortable surroundings in general practice.
CCG district nurses, health visitors and the continence team now use the Omnia Practice as a base for their activities. These CCG staff look after patients registered with other GP’s in the locality but will be able to offer some services, such as vaccination of children from Omnia.
The new building has given us much extended clinical and non clinical areas with an education facility upstairs for the training of doctors, nurses and other related health care groups. We also have Lloyds pharmacy within the building.
Our aim is to continue to strive to be a dynamic organisation that is flexible and able to respond to and influence the changes in primary health care provision that will inevitably continue for the foreseeable future. This is a forward looking practice with a vision of the future which involves firmly embracing the changing NHS in the interest of enhanced patient care.
Publication of GP ‘mean’ earnings.
All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (e.g. average pay) for GP’s working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.
The average pay for GPs working in Omnia Practice in the last financial year was £71,000 before tax and national insurance. This was for 7 full time GPs and 5 part time GPs who have worked at the practice for more than 6 months.
