Art for Health Group
As a practice we embrace holistic care and we are keen to use art as a way of keeping well.
The health development nurse and an artist run this inclusive group every Thursday 1.30pm-3.30pm. The group supports people of all abilities and needs including people with mental or physical health issues and learning disabilities.
It is well documented that art benefits people in the field of mental health and we have experienced how uplifting and beneficial the art and group has been first hand for patients health and wellbeing.
Some Comments from the Group
‘Sometimes I arrive in pain and I do the art and by the time I have finished the pain has lessened’
‘This Group has got me through some dark days’
‘I come to the group and the time just disappears!’
The group has exhibited work at The Clock Tower Gallery in the Northern General, as part of the Abundance exhibitions and worked to exhibit at Coterie Gallery.
Art for the Housebound
Outreach to our Housebound Patients
We really try to engage with our housebound patient’s needs.
We have a nurse who has lots of links in the community to enable any isolated patients to engage in their community via lunch clubs, exercise, social cafes and even things like referring into housebound library services or befriending projects.
Our housebound patients receive home visits for their Chronic Disease reviews from Practice Nurses which means they receive a good quality of care equal to that of our less isolated patients.
We have offered housebound patients 1-1 art session via Arts Council Funding, this involves 1-1 tuition of patients who are housebound. The tuition is delivered by an art teacher in the patient’s own home.
Each patient has a special materials pack developed to suit their individual needs
Sessions are held in the patient’s own home over a period of 6 to 8 weeks. During this time period they are given guidance and support, this has enabled them to gain confidence and actually exhibit some of their work!

Freedom of Information
Freedom of Information 2005
From January 2005 the practice has a legal responsibility to respond to patient requests for information about the practice that in publicly available. The practice will respond to any such request made in writing within 20 days, however there may be a charge for the information requested, of which you will be informed prior to release of information.
NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice is publicised, and that 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.
The average pay for GPs working in Foxhill Medical Centre in the last financial year was £54,021 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 6 part time GPs who worked in the practice for more than six months.
The figure has been calculated according to government guidelines and is not representative of the hours worked by the GPs or their take home pay. Please bear in mind the working day of the GP does not just involve patients appointments/face to face contact. There are also results to review and act upon, many phone calls to return, repeat prescriptions to process (40-50 daily) and two deliveries of post daily (hospital letters - up to 60 per day) along with electronic correspondence.
The average working day for GPs at Foxhill Medical Centre is 12-13 hours.
