Registering with the Practice
Patients wishing to join the Practice will be asked to complete a registration form and health questionnaire. You will then be asked to make an appointment with the Healthcare Assistant for a routine health check. If you are on regular medication, please bring an up to date list along to this appointment.
Area covered by the practice
Our practice area includes Grindon, Humbledon, Springwell, Thorney Close, Middle Herrington, East Herrington, Farringdon & Plains Farm. Please ask a receptionist if you require more detail of the boundary areas.
Change of Address
You must let us know straight away (in writing if possible) if you change your name or address. This is to make sure that you can continue to be registered with us, and to keep our records up to date.
If you move to an address which is outside our Practice Boundary, you will have to register with a new Doctor. This is because we cannot visit or treat patients who live outside this boundary.
NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice is published 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 about GP earnings, nor to make any comparisons with other practices.
The average earnings for GPs working in Springwell Medical Group in the last financial year was £88,268 before taxation and national insurance.
This is for 2 full time GPs and 3 part time GPs who worked in the practice for more than 6 months.
