Whooping Cough Immunisation for Pregnant Women

The Department of Health have launched a Whooping Cough Vaccination campain for pregnant women between the 28th and 38th week of pregnancy.  We are carrying out this vaccination programme for our patients.  Should you fall into this category, please contact reception, who will make you an appropriate appointment with our nurses.  You can have this vaccination at the same time as the flu vaccination.  Should you have any queries regarding the immunisation, please contact either your midwife or the surgery.

NHS Services Average Earnings

All GP Practices are required to declare the mean earnings (e.g. average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.  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 comparisons with any other practice.

The average pay for GPs working in The Border Practice in the last financial year was £60,482 before tax and National Insurance.  This is for 3 full time GPs and 3 part time GPs who worked at the practice for more than 6 months.
