IMPORTANT NOTICE 

Dr Hans R Bance 

Dear Patients 

After over 30 years of service here at the practice, I have decided that the time is now right for me to fully retire from General Practice on 30th June 2018.  

There have been many exciting changes in the practice and these are continuing to help us thrive going into the future. 

It has been both a pleasure and a privilege to have been able to treat you all over the years and to be part of the Castleford & Methley community.

 

Thank you. 

I wish you all the very best. 

Dr Hans R Bance


NEWS ARTICLE: Improving Access

 

Improving access to general practice: evening and weekend appointments now available

Patients who are registered at this practice can now book an appointment to see a GP or nurse on weekday evenings (after 6.30pm) or at the weekends (on Saturday and Sunday). Appointments will take place at Trinity Medical Practice Wakefield and Pontefract General Infirmary. Talk to your practice receptionist to find out more or book an appointment.

 

By March 2019 everyone in England will benefit from access to general practice appointments in the evenings and weekends at a time that is most convenient to them. This is part of a national drive to help improve access to general practice and get the best possible outcomes for patients. Further information is available at www.england.nhs.uk/gpaccess

GP Net 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 GP's working in Dr Bance and Partners in the last financial year ended 31 March 2016 was £62,300, before tax and national insurance. This is for 7 full time GP's, 1 part time GP and 1 locum GP who worked in the practice for more than six months".

NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice are publicised and the required disclosure shown above.  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.
