Noticeboard

COVID-19 VACCINE.

Please DO NOT call the surgery to ask when you will be able to receive your vaccination. Rest assured that we will contact you when we are able to vaccinate you.                                                                                                                                                                                    


 FLU VACCINATIONS

This year’s Flu Clinics will be different due to Covid-19.   You will NOT be able to just turn up as in previous years.
If you have still not had your vaccination, please contact reception to book an appointment.  We ask that you attend on your own where possible and remember to wear a face covering when you attend the appointment.                                                                                                                                                             

 Named GP

All patients registered at Barrack Lane Medical Centre hold a practice wide registration. This means you can elect to be seen at either Barrack Lane or Stoke Park site. Every patient is allocated a named GP, but this does not prevent you from seeing the clinician of your choice if they have availability. If you would like more details please contact us or ask at reception.


Keep or Cancel

Patients who do not attend for their appointments cost the National Health Service many millions of pounds each year.

If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.

By giving us as much notice as you can you are helping us to make sure that someone else is given your slot.


Out of Hours

For urgent advice after the surgery has closed, during the night and at weekends dial 111 for the Out of Hours Service for Suffolk. Calls to this service are free of charge from both landlines and mobiles. 


Test Results

Specimens need to be dropped in at the reception desk by 12 noon so that we can send the samples off to the laboratories.  Please ring for results after 2.30pm when the surgery is less busy.

 

GP Net Earnings

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

The average pay for GPs working in Barrack Lane Medical Centre in the last financial year was £91,855 before tax and national insurance. This is for 4 full time GPs and 3 part time GPs who worked in the practice for more than 6 months.

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.
