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.



When We Are Closedtelephone_brown

The surgery is open from 8:00am until 6:00pm weekdays, but is normally closed at weekends and bank holidays.

Medical services outside of our normal opening hours are provided by the North Durham Clinical Commissioning Group which has doctors and emergency care nurse practitioners working at the University Hospital of North Durham.

They make home visits, give telephone advice or arrange for consultations at the Out of Hours Centre.

What to do when your GP practice is closed:

  • if it's a life-threatening emergency call 999
