Publication of Earnings 2017/18
All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (eg average) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice. The average pay for GPs working at St George's Medical Centre in the last financial year before tax and national insurance is £72,048. This is for 4 full time GPs and 2 part time GP's and 1 locum GP who worked in the practice for more than 6 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.
Nurse Practitioners have completed specialist training in order for them to be able to deal with telephone triaging, assessing and treating minor illnesses & chronic diseases.
Sisters Dower, Harness, Norman, and Williams-Millar have also completed further training to allow them to independently prescribe.
Practice nurses are qualified and registered nurses. They can help with health issues such as family planning, healthy living advice, blood pressure checks and dressings. The practice nurses run clinics for long-term health conditions such as asthma or diabetes, minor ailment clinics and carry out cervical smears.
Healthcare assistants support practice nurses with their daily work and carry out tasks such as phlebotomy (drawing blood), blood pressure measurement and new patient checks. They may act as a chaperone when a patient or doctor requests one.
Phlebotomists are responsible for the taking of blood samples from patients, labelling them correctly and sending them off for analysis and testing.
The management team are involved in the day-to-day running of the surgery. They also support the GPs and other medical professionals with delivering patient services, and help to develop and introduce new services to enhance patient care. The practice team are happy to hear your views on the surgery or help deal with any complaints or queries.
