Zero tolerance policy

We do NOT tolerate abusive behaviour to any of our hard work staff in any way, and we take all cases of abuse to our staff very seriously.

This practice supports the national campaign for zero tolerance to all members of NHS staff, as we have a right to care for people without the fear of being attacked or abused in any way. Our staff are fully trained to be polite and helpful, and we expect the same in return for this. All forms of aggressive behaviour will not be tolerated, and we actively remove abusive patients from our surgery, and in some cases, contact the police.

Forms of abuse include, but are not limited to:

  • Rude or explicit language.
  • Physical violence.
  • Threatening behaviour.
  • Verbal abuse and insults.
  • Racial abuse.
  • Sexual harassment.

Publication of earnings

All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (e.g. average) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.

The average pay for GPs working in the Bloomfield Medical Centre in the last financial year 2021/2022 before tax and National Insurance was £54.363

This is for 3 full time GPs, 7 part time GPs, and 1 locum GP who worked in the practice for more than 6 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 should not be used to form any judgement about GP earnings, nor to make any comparison with any other practice.

Named GP

From April 2015 the Government has extended the Named GP scheme to all patients. This is something that the practice already operates as each patient is registered with an individual doctor. This does not mean that you have to see that doctor or that you cannot see anyone else in the practice – as always you can ask to see any specific clinician if that is important to you and they are able to manage the issue in question. It does mean that there is an individual who takes an overview of the services being provided to patients registered with them to ensure that we are offering relevant and suitable care.

If you would like to know who your Named GP is you can find out in a number of ways:

  • Check the right hand side of prescriptions: we have configured the system to print your Named GP here from now on
  • Ask any clinician within the practice when you next attend
  • Contact the practice in any of the usual ways if you need to know and do not have a forthcoming visit (please do not make appointments just to ask this question)

If you would prefer to have a different Named GP than the one you are currently allocated we will do our best to accommodate this. Please make such a request in writing to the Practice Manager.
