Publication of GP Net Earnings

As part of our 2015 GMS contract, we are required to confirm the following details for the financial year 2014/15.

There were 4 full time and 5 part time GPs working at the practice in 2014/15. No locums were employed during this period.

Change to Routine Blood Tests

Please be aware that ALL routine annual blood tests (including diabetic, coronary heart disease, hypertension) are changing from fasting to non-fasting. This is in line with recent NICE guidelines that support a non-fasting cholesterol blood test.

Mobile Numbers & Email Addresses

We use text messages to send appointment reminders and in the future for the notification of routine test results.

Friends & Family Test

From 1st December 2014, GP practices are required to undertake the NHS Friends & Family Test, asking patients whether they would recommend their GP surgery.
