GP Net Earnings

Posted: 25 March 2019

NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice is publicised, and the required disclosure is shown below.

However 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.

The average pay for GPs working in Deneside Medical Centre in the last financial year was £129,829 before tax and national insurance. This is for 1 full time GP and 2 locum GPs who worked in the practice for more than six months.

Care Navigation

Posted: 9 March 2019

New ways Deneside Medical Centre can help you get to the right support.

Across County Durham, all GP practices want to make sure their patients are seen quickly by the right healthcare professional. We know that when you are not feeling well you just want to feel better quickly.

So shortly, when you contact your GP practice, receptionists may ask you a few questions to help navigate you to the best person to help you quickly. They won’t try to diagnose your problem, but you may need to tell them a little bit about why you are calling. You don’t have to of course, the choice is yours and you can always still request to see your GP, but you may be able to be seen faster by someone who is able to provide the right care for you using ‘Care Navigation’ to help.
