Registrars Currently At Lane End

Dr Abel Boon is working at the practice as a GP Registrar. He is a qualified doctor now training to become GPs.

GP Net Earnings

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, and should not be used to form any judgement about GP earnings, nor to make any comparison 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 this practice in the last full financial year was £108,160 before Tax and National insurance. This is for 1 full time GP, 6 part time GPs and zero locum GPs who worked in the practice for more than six months.

Earlier Cancer Diagnosis

NHS England and NHS Improvement launched a radically new cancer phase of the ‘Help Us, Help You’ campaign. The aim of the campaign is to encourage people who are experiencing potential signs of cancer to come forward to their GP practice to help increase earlier diagnosis and improve outcomes.

The campaign is designed to address the key barriers to people seeking help, the fear around cancer diagnosis and increase awareness of the importance of body vigilance when it comes to bodily changes that could be a sign of cancer.

The NHS Long Term Plan committed to increasing the number of cancers detected at an early stage one or two from half to three quarters by 2028.
