Average GP 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 Park View surgery in the last financial year 2019/20 was £72,176 before tax and NI. This calculation is for 1 full-time GPs and 3 locum GPs, who had worked in the practice for full 12 months.

Home Visit

 

Home Visits are discretionary and not an absolute requirement of GP terms and services.

All home visits are triaged and assessed from information obtained prior to the visit.

All calls for home visits should reach the surgery by 11am. A clinician will then telephone to discuss the request.

 

GP Home Visit is requested for patient who is bedbound or is terminally ill or would cause serious harm when moved.

Unsuitable reasons for GP Home Visit:

  • no transport or money
  • have children to manage
  • have mobile individuals (e.g. carer, family member, friend) to help
  • social reason or for convenience
  • have other more appropriate help

Abusing GP Home Visit is a serious matter and risks de-registration from the practice.
