Named Allocated GP

You may be aware that from April 2015 all practices are required to provide all their patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to them.  

The allocated named GP will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to you. This does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice as you currently do. 

You do not need to take any further action. If you wish to be told the name of your named GP, please ask the receptionists when you are next in the surgery. 

If you are unhappy with the named doctor allocated to you and have a genuine concern that this doctor will not be best placed to undertake the responsibilities assigned; then you can ask to be reallocated to another doctor.



Gp Earnings Data

In accordance with current NHS contracts all practices are to publish on their website by the end of the financial year (31st March 2016) the mean earnings for all GP's in their practice relating to the previous financial year 2014/2015.

 The average pay for GP's working in Barnburgh Surgery in the last financial year was £39,430 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 1 full-time GP and 1 locum GP who worked in the practice for more than six months.”


General Practice is excellent value! The total funding given to each individual practice has been published for the first time by the Government, revealing that the average practice received funding worth £136 per registered patient per year in 2013/14.
