2. Individuals living in Ventnor and surrounding areas by providing access to excellent medical care.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) are the independent regulator of health and adult social care in England.

The CQC make sure health and social care services provide people with safe, effective, compassionate, high-quality care and encourage them to improve.

They monitor, inspect and regulate services to make sure they meet fundamental standards of quality and safety and publish what is found, including performance ratings to help people choose care.

CQC overall rating: Newly formed practice yet to be inspected. The mergered practices were both recorded as “Good” when Ventnor Medical Centre – 8th July 2016 and Grove House Surgery – 11th May 2016 were inspected by the Care Quality Commission.

Ventnor Medical Practice has two buildings, the Acute hub (formerly Grove House Surgery) and the Routine hub (formerly Ventnor Medical Centre).  Both buildings are fully accessible to patients from entrances on Albert Street.

The practice will endeavour to provide translation support, upon request, to patients. This is likely to be restricted to the translation of letters.

Ventnor Medical Practice currently provides training placements to both trainee doctors and trainee Physician Associates. As a training practice, hospital doctors wanting to enter General Practice can spend up to twelve months with us in order to gain the experience they need to become family doctors. A doctor in training is called a GP REGISTRAR, reflecting the fact that they are a qualified doctor and here to learn General Practice.

The Deanery will inspect the Practice regularly to ensure we provide the appropriate standard of care, levels of organisation, and an environment that would be conductive for a training practice. The staff and Partners have all worked hard to achieve this. We are strongly committed to providing high standards of training, without losing the friendly touch that has been the hallmark of this Practice. We are committed to training doctors to become GP’s.

Consultations may be video recorded as part of training and your medical records may be used for educational purposes. You will be made aware of this and asked to sign a consent form prior to your consultation. You are under no obligation and it will not affect your treatment.

NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice is published 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 and therefore should not be used to form any judgement about GP earnings, nor to make any comparisons with any other practice. ‡

All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (e.g. average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.

The average pay for GPs working in Ventnor Medical Practice in the last financial year was £128,870 before tax and national insurance. This is for 2 full time GPs, 1 part time GP and 1 locum GP who worked in the practice for more than six months.
