All GP Practices are required to declare the mean earnings (e.g. average pay) for GPs working to delivery NHS services to patients at each practice. The average pay for GPs working in the Old Fletton Surgery in the last financial year was £68,878 before Tax and National Insurance. This is for 4 full time GPs and 2 part time GPs who worked in the practice for more than six months.
Named Accountable GP
Every patient who is registered at the practice has been allocated and notified of their accountable named GP. Your accountable named GP will be responsible for your overall care. If you can’t remember who your accountable GP is then you can contact the practice. If you have a preference for a particular GP we will do our best to accommodate your request. Being allocated an accountable GP doesn’t mean that you cannot see any GP at the practice. You are entitled to request to see any GP at the practice.
We ask for information about you so that you can receive the best possible care and treatment. We keep this information, together with details of your care, to ensure that your doctor or nurse has accurate and up-to-date information which may be needed if we see you again.
We only use or pass information about you to people who have a genuine need for it in connection with your medical care. Whenever we can we will remove details that identify you as an individual. Everyone working in the NHS has a legal duty to maintain the highest level of confidentiality about patient information.
