Learning Disability Awareness Week 14th – 20th June 2021
This year’s Learning Disability Week is taking place from 14th – 20th June and this year’s theme is art and creativity.
Learning Disability Week is a great way to raise the awareness of learning disability across the UK.
For many people with a learning disability and their families, getting creative has been a way to stay connected and positive through the challenges of last year.
We know that people with a learning disability are up to twice as likely to experience mental health problems, due to many factors like discrimination and social isolation.
Getting creative can help improve mental health and help children, young people and adults with learning disabilities to express themselves through activities like art and music.

Access Statement Update 17th May 2021
As a practice, we are aware of the recent communication from NHSE and media regarding the opening up of GP receptions and appointments as of Monday 17th May. As a practice we are reviewing how we can maximise patient access, whilst maintaining safety for patients and staff safely as guidance changes.
At Mytton Oak Medical Practice we have continued to work and support patients throughout the whole of the pandemic and continue to respond to unprecedented levels of demand.
In the period March and April 2021 alone we have dealt with more calls than in any other period on record, and as a practice will continue to meet the needs of our patients as best we can, whilst continuing to support the COVID Vaccination programme.
In the short term we will continue to monitor access to the premises, and offer a triage first service in order to ensure patients are treated in the most appropriate way and will continue to offer remote consultations and appropriate face to face appointments until a safety review is completed.
We can confirm that face to face appointments HAVE continued throughout the whole of the pandemic, however we reinforce that this is following a triage first service in order to maintain the best interests of both patients and staff.
We would like to thank you for your continued and on going support.
GP Earnings (published March2021)
NHS England requires that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice is publicised, and the required disclosure is shown below.
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 Mytton Oak Medical Practice in the last financial year was £73,986 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 2 full time GPs, 4 part time GPs and 1 locum GPs who have worked in the practice for more than six months.
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.
