Surgery of the Year 2018, Annual Practice Award
We were very pleased to be nominated to take part in the above award.  Unfortunately, we did not win this award.  However, we did receive some very positive feedback from our patients which we would like to share with you.  Please see the  General Practice Awards 2018, Patient Feedback for more information.

 

The Little Orange Book is focused on acute illness in young children and helps parents and carers to recognise and then respond appropriately to a range of diseases, illness and conditions as well as signposting parents to the most appropriate service or clinician should they need further support.  To obtain The Little Orange Book, please ask at reception.

If your child has become acutely unwell over the last couple of days and you need urgent advice, please contact the surgery and we can arrange for a doctor to speak to you and, if necessary, see your child.  This could save you attending A&E or a Walk In Centre.

 

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 (eg 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 £64,769 before tax and National Insurance.  This is for one full time GP, two part time GPs and one locum GP who worked in the practice for more than six months.
