Patient Infor­ma­tion

All reg­is­tered patients now have a named allo­cated GP. If you do not know who this is you can ask at recep­tion when you are next vis­it­ing or con­tact the surgery to find out.

All GP prac­tices are required to declare the mean net earn­ings (e.g. aver­age pay) for GPs work­ing to deliver NHS ser­vices to patients at each prac­tice. This is required in the inter­ests of the greater pub­lic account­abil­ity recog­nis­ing GP pay is ulti­mately funded from tax paid by the public.

The aver­age pay for GPs work­ing in the Axbridge and Wed­more Med­ical Prac­tice in the last finan­cial year was £39,045 before tax and national insur­ance. This is for 2 full time GP’s 5 part time GPs and 1 locum GP (who worked in the prac­tice for more than six months).

This fig­ure reflects income for pro­vi­sion of core NHS ser­vices. Fur­ther income is also received for pro­vid­ing other non-compulsory NHS services.
