**** Care Navigation – Coming Soon
We are introducing an initiative to help people to find the most appropriate source of help when they call our practice or pop in to make an appointment.
This means that our specially trained receptionists may ask questions about why appointments are required.
You are not obliged to answer the questions they ask, however by doing so we can make sure that those people who really need to see a GP can see them as soon as possible.
Virtually everyone who calls to make an appointment asks to see a GP, but very often help will be available more quickly from other highly skilled medical professionals such as nurses or pharmacists, or from other services, including the voluntary sector, they can support people with a wide range of social, emotional or practical needs.
Our trained receptionists will be able to offer you the most appropriate help using the range of information they have access to.
**** We are now offering group consultations for patients with long term conditions such as asthma and COPD. If you would like further information please call into the surgery and speak to our group consultations facilitator.
**** From 1st December Middle Chare Surgery will be opening on a Saturday morning from 08.00am - 11.30am instead of a Monday evening. There will be GP and Nurse appointments available.
People with dementia want to feel confident and comfortable doing the things that are important to them, in their community. We as a practice have registered to become Dementia Friends and are encouraging our staff, colleagues and volunteers to become Dementia Friends also, you'll be making a huge difference to people affected by dementia.

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.
All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (e.g. average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.
The average pay for GPs working in this practice in the last full financial year was £51,550 before Tax and National insurance. This is for three full time GPs, four part time GP sand one locum GP who worked in the practice for more than six months.
