Zero Tolerance Policy - A heartfelt plea to all of our patients.

Unfortunately, we are seeing an increase in unacceptable behaviour from our patients which will ultimately result in driving staff away from the practice and will only make the services we provide harder to deliver. 

All of our staff are doing their very best in difficult circumstances and have worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic.

To the majority of our patients who continue to be understanding and supportive, we thank you for your kindness and appreciate your tolerance. Demand for appointments has become significantly greater than capacity, and whichever way we manage our appointments, there is simply not enough to be able to see everyone when they want it.

We appreciate your frustrations at not being able to get through on the phone and having to wait longer for an appointment, or not being able to be seen on the day that you want. We are all on the same side and all want to ensure high quality care is delivered to our patients when needed.

"Everyone has the right to be safe at work, and we want to reiterate in the strongest possible terms that violence and aggression towards our staff will not tolerated. Staff facing abuse will always have the surgery's full support". 

Thank you for your support and understanding.

August Bank holiday 2022 - We will be closed on Monday 29th August and re-open on Tuesday 30th August. Further details can be found under Opening Times - Bank Holidays 2022.

GP Net Earnings

GP MEAN EARNINGS 2020/21

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 Prestbury Medical Practice in the last financial year 2020/21 was £69,404 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 2 full-time GP's, 8 part-time GP's and 5 locum GP’s who worked in the practice for more than 6 months.

NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice is publicised and the required disclosure is shown above. 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 to form any judgement about GP earnings, nor to make any comparison with any other practice.
