'Reedyford Health Care aim to provide high quality, evidence-based health care and to support our patients in managing their health conditions effectively.

We see patient satisfaction as the key to the success of our Practice and are totally committed to patient care'.

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

The mean earnings for GPs in Reedyford Health Care Group in the financial year ended 31st March 2016 was £83,002 before deduction of employee's superannuation contributions, tax and National Insurance.  This is the average pay for the 3 full-time GPs and 4 part-time GPs who worked in the practice for more than 6 months during that year.

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.

You may have read in the press or seen on the television that from 1st April 2015, GP Practices are required to inform their patients who is the named GP with overall responsibility for the care and support the surgery provides them.

When you register with Reedyford Health Care you automatically allocated to one of the Partners.  This is for administration purposes and this will now be your named GP.

However, this does not prevent you seeing any GP withing the Practice, as you currently do, nor does it change the GP you prefer to see.

If you are unsure of your named GP, please ask a member of the reception team next you either telephone or call into the surgery.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us on 01282 657575.


The NHS is founded on a common set of principles and values that bind together the communities and people it serves - patients and public - and the staff who work for it.

This Constitution establishes the principles and values of the NHS in England.  It sets out rights to which the public, patients and staff owe one another to ensure that the NHS operates fairly and effectively.  All NHS bodies and private and third sector providers supplying NHS services are required by law to take account of this Constitution in their decisions and actions.

The Constitution will be renewed every 10 years, with the involvement of the public, patients and staff.  Please click on the following link for the full report on how Reedford Health Care implements the NHS Constitution:

The NHS in England is introducing the 'Summary Care Record', which will be used in emergency care.

The record will contain information about any medicines you are taking, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had to ensure those caring for you have enough information to treat you safely.

Your Summary Care Record will be available to authorised healthcare staff providing your care anywhere in England, but they will ask your permission before they look at it.  This means that if you have an accident or become ill, healthcare staff treating you have immediate access to important information about your health.

Your GP practice is supporting Summary Care Records and a patient you have a choice:

  • Yes I would like a Summary Care Record - you do not need to do anything and a Summary Care Record will be created for you.
  • No I do not want a Summary Care Record - you can find a link to the opt out form below.  Please complete the form and hand it to a member of the practice staff.

If you need more time to make your choice you should let your GP Practice know.  For more information, talk to Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS) on 0800 032 2424, visit www.nhscarerecords.nhs.uk or  telephone the dedicated NHS Summary Care Record Information Line on 0300 123 3020.

You can choose not to have a Summary Care Record and you can change your mind at any time by informing your GP Practice.

If you do nothing we will assume that you are happy with these changes and create a Summary Care Record for you.  Children under 16 will automatically have a Summary Care Record created for them unless their parent or guardian chooses to opt them out.  If you are the parent or guardian of a child under 16 and feel that they are old enough to understand, you should make this information available to them.
