All our patients have been allocated a named GP who is responsible for patients’ overall care at the practice. In addition new patients will be allocated a GP on registration. If you wish to find out who this is, please ask when you are seeing a clinician and they will be happy to tell you. Alternatively call reception and they will let you know. If you have a preference for a particular GP, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate your request. However please don’t forget that you are free to see any GP when you request an appointment (unless you need the duty doctor) and we will try and accommodate you.
GP Net Earnings
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 at Ibstock & Barlestone Surgeries in the last financial year was £66,423 before tax and national insurance. This is for 1 full time GP and 6 part time GPs who worked in the Practice for more than 6 months.
We are a GP training practice and so regularly have trainee GPs here working with us. These are fully qualified doctors who have decided to specialise as a GP. In order to become a fully qualified GP they have to undertake 3 years of training and pass a number of exams. While they are with us they are fully supervised by our GPs who review their work regularly.
You may have a consultation with one of these doctors whilst they are working here and they also have to undertake a number of video consultations. If you are asked if you consent for your consultation to be videoed, please don’t feel under any pressure to agree. We all understand that some patients don’t feel comfortable with being videoed and this will not in any way affect the care you receive from the trainee GP or our own permanent GPs.
If you would like any more information about the trainee GPs please contact Diane Sheasby, our Operations Manager, who will be pleased to help. She can be contacted via Reception.
