Numbers swell for Hull Health Forward Confederation (HHFC)

Posted on 15 Feb 2018

We at Princes Medical Centre, as existing members of the Hull Health Forward Confederation (HHFC), are pleased to announce that two more like minded practices have decided to join the Confederation. These practices bring with them an enormous amount of clinical and managerial expertise. This will ensure that not only will patient care continue to be foremost in our minds but also incredibly, practices are still able to maintain their independence and individuality.

Welcoming these new practices into the Confederation takes the number of registered patients to over 73,000 or approximately 28% of the registered patient population of Hull (Hull CCG figures at December 2017). This is no mean feat given the short period of time that has elapsed from beginning the process and the difficulties associated with the sprawling geographical phenomena and political minefield that is Hull. Furthermore, given these numbers and therefore associated funding will mean that monies given to HHFC by NHS England/Hull CCG stay in the area and develop healthcare services to local patients.

Posted on 1 Nov 2017

We, as the Hull Health Forward Confederation, are pleased to announce that four more like minded practices have decided to join the Confederation. These practices bring with them an enormous amount of clinical and managerial expertise. This will ensure that not only will patient care continue to be foremost in our minds but also incredibly, practices are still able to maintain their independence and individuality.

Welcoming these new practices into the confederation takes the number of registered patients to over 52,000 or approximately 20% of the registered patient population of Hull. This is no mean feat given the short period of time that has elapsed from beginning the process and the difficulties associated with the sprawling geographical phenomena that is Hull. Furthermore, it should mean that our vision for developing patient care as we move into the next decade will have some gravitas.

Wolseley Medical Centre

However, it should be noted that the prescribed method for calculating earnings is potentially misleading as it does not take into 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 mean NHS earnings for the four doctors working within the practice in accordance with prescribed calculations is £50,025.00 for the calculated 'Tax Year' April 2014 - March 2015.
