Named Accountable GP

The GP Contract in England now requires the named, accountable GP to take responsibility for the co-ordination of all of the appropriate services and ensure they are delivered where required (based on the named GP’s clinical judgement) to each of their patients. This includes working with relevant health and social care professionals to deliver a multi- disciplinary care package that meets the needs of the patient.

The role of the named GP will NOT:

  • Take on vicarious responsibility for the work of other doctors or health care professionals
  • Take on 24 hour responsibility for the patient or have to change their working hours
  • Imply personal availability for the GP’s throughout the working week
  • Be the only clinician who provides care to that patient
  • There is no condition within the requirement for the patient to see their names GP when they book an appointment with the practice
  • Patients are entitled to choose to see any GP or nurse in the practice in line with current arrangement

Please speak to Reception if you would like more information.

Average GP Earnings

All GP Practices are required to declare the means earning (e.g. average pay) for GP’s working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.

The average pay for GP’s working in the Trinity Medical Centre in the last financial year was £77,332 before Tax and National Insurance. This is for 2 full time GP’s and 15 part time GP’s and 0 locum GP’s who worked in the Practice for more than six months.

NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice is publicised and the required disclosure is shown below. However 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 should not be used for any judgement of GP earnings, nor to make any comparisons with other practices.
