Garden Park, White Swan and Forest Hall surgeries merge

As of July 1st, all three surgeries will be collectively known as Stephenson Park Health Group, which reflects the strong industrial heritage of our area and also that the surgeries are joining together rather than one surgery taking over another.

You can still refer to each surgery by its original name - hospitals and GPs will still understand this.

For the first 3 months, following concerns being raised by patients, we will not allow booking of appointments at different sites. This will be reviewed as our appointments systems and opening hours are gradually aligned.

New logins may be needed for online access for patients. If you have any difficulty accessing online services, please contact your usual surgery.

GP Earnings

NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors in the practice is published. The required disclosure is shown below. The method they insist on for publishing earnings takes no account of how much doctors spend in practice and just becomes a number generated from average GP hours and net income. It can't be used to form any judgement or comparison of individual GP earnings! However this is what we are required to publish. Earnings have been very distorted this year by staff mix changing, income being deferred for spend in a different financial year and also merger costs.

For the last full financial year the average GP pay for 2017-18 for GPs was £72,000 before tax and NI. This is for 3 full time GPs 6 Part time GPs who worked in the practice for more than 6 months.
