Named GP

All patients at Sandy Health Centre have a named, accountable doctor who is responsible for coordinating their care. If you do not know who your named GP is, please ask a member of our reception team.

Your named doctor will be allocated to you by the practice. You can still talk to or make appointments to see any of our doctors or nurses, not just your named GP.

If you have a preference and would like to request a particular doctor at the practice to be your named GP, please talk to one of our receptionists.

The practice cannot guarantee that you will be able to see the same GP each time you visit, but we will do our best to accommodate your request.

GP Earnings

All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (average pay) for GP’s working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.

The average pay for GP’s working in Sandy Health Centre in the last financial year was £97,202 before tax and national insurance. This is for 4 full time GP’s, 0 part time GP and 0 salaried GP’s who worked in the practice for more than six months.

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 it should not be used to form any judgement about GP earnings, nor make any comparison with any other practice. This figure is also prior to pension deductions.
