Whilst Northfield Health Centre opened in 1985 there has been a Medical Centre on the site for the last 60 years or so. Today there are two practices at the Centre – this website relates to the Tudor practice which is the larger practice. There are also Counsellors, Health Visitors, District Nurses, Speech Therapists, Chiropodists, School Nurses, Community Dentists and a dispensing chemist based here. Consulting facilities are at ground floor level. There are no steps, facilitating access for disabled people.
As from 1st April 2015 we will be allocating 'ALL' patients at the practice a named GP. If you are unsure, forgotten or have not been informed who your named GP is, please ask next time you make contact with the surgery. You are unlikely to see any notable change in the way your care is delivered and you are still able to see the doctor of your choice. The role of the ‘Named GP’ is to ensure that you receive all appropriate services you require from the surgery.
GPs working within the NHS services are required to declare the ‘average earnings’ for the financial year. The average pay for GPs working within the Clinical GP Team of Dr Ross and Partners in the last financial year was £74,115, before tax and NI.
This is for 3 full time GP’s, 7 part time GPs and 0 locum GPs, who have worked in the practice for more than 6 months.
All patients registered with Dr Ross and Partners at Northfield Health Centre have been allocated a named GP.
If you would like to know who your allocated named GP is, please ask a member of staff next time you are visiting the surgery or alternatively telephone and ask one of the reception team, who will be able to let you know. However, this does not mean that you must only see your ‘named GP’, you are able to see your usual GP - the doctor of your choice.
