Our practice area covers
From the 1st April 2015 practices are required under their contract to allocate a named GP to ALL patients including children. All patients at the surgery have been allocated a named GP who is responsible for generally over seeing your medical care but for your day to day consultations if your named GP is not available you can continue to see any Doctor within the practice.
As a patient you do not have to take any further action but if you have any queries regarding this please do not hesitate to contact the Practice Manager to discuss this further.
If you would like to know who your allocated GP is please ask at Reception
Patients aged over 75
All patients aged over 75 are allocated a named GP by our Surgery. This GP will be responsible for the oversight and co-ordination of your care at the Practice. They will
- Ensure that services are delivered to you,
- Work with health and social care professionals to deliver care to meet your needs
- Ensure that your needs are recognised and responded to by the relevant clinicians in the practice
- Ensure that you have access to a health check if you request one
You may not be able to see your named GP “on the day”, but their colleagues will be available. Your named GP will take an overview of your care.
Initially, we have allocated the GP named on your medical card...You are free to choose who your named GP will be if you wish to change.
Patients will be informed of this by messages on prescriptions or at consultations at the surgery.
Please note: there is no need to telephone the practice for this information.
All GP practices are required to declare a mean figure for GP pay for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice. The method of arriving at this figure may well be variable between practices.
The calculated gross average pay for GPs working at Harston Surgery in the financial year 2014-2015 was 54143GBP before tax and National Insurance and some expenses and pensions payments. This is for 2 full time, 2 part time and 3 locum GPs providing services for at least six months in the year.
It should be noted that the prescribed method for calculating pay 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 pay nor to make any comparison with any other practice.
