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 in Holmlands Medical Centre in the last financial year was £53,197 before tax and National Insurance.
You may be aware that from April all practices are required to provide all their patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to them.
All patients, including children have been allocated a named, accountable GP. In our practice this is denoted by your "Usual GP".
The Usual GP takes on responsibility for your overall care at the practice.
You will be informed of your Usual GP when you register, however you can also check who your Usual GP is at any time by asking any member of staff.
Patients have been allocated a Usual GP. Reasonable efforts will be made to accommodate a change of Usual GP at your request.
Patients can and should feel free to choose to see any GP or nurse in the practice. However seeing your Usual GP in preference to others will improve your continuity of care

Commissioning patient-centered care is a core objective of the WGPCC. In order to truly achieve the vision of ‘no decision about me, without me’, set out in the Health and Social Care Bill, it is vital that the consortium does all it can to:
Involve patients in decisions about commissioning services, ensuring that priorities and activities of the consortium are informed and driven by patients.
Provide patients with the opportunity to tell us what they think.
Ensure that key messages reach as many patients as possible by using a range of communication channels.
Understand any issues that patients may have with healthcare locally, in order to identify solutions
