Changes to Repeat Prescription Ordering


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 £54,966 before Tax and National insurance. This is for 1 full time GP, 2 part time GPs and 5 locum GPs who worked in the practice for more than six months.




A carer is a person who looks after a relative, friend or neighbour who is finding life difficult to manage without help.  This may be because of illness, disability or old age.  The time spent caring ranges from a few hours per week to 24-hour attention.
What problems does this bring the carer?


    • Lack of time for living their own lives  

    • Competing demands of other responsibilities  

    • Financial

In general, increasing the opportunities for self care.  This may take the following forms:

    • Eating well.

    • Suitable physical activity.

    • Learning to relax and rest.
