Practice Staff


Nursing Team

Our team comprises of three nurses and two nursing assistants, who support and assist the nursing team that work with us in the surgery and clinics. They will be able to help you with many problems and are be available for general advice. In addition, they manage patients who suffer from chronic medical disease such as asthma, diabetes, heart disease, hypertension and COAPD. In addition to the management of chronic disease, nurses are also responsible for delivering an excellent immunisation and health screening service (cervical screening, family planning, smoking cessation advice). You can make an appointment to see a nurse without seeing the doctor. 


Practice Management 


The practice management team consists of the business manager, practice manager, staff supervisor and assistant staff supervisor. They are responsible for the day-to-day running of the practice. We endeavour to deliver a high standard of care to all our patients and if we fall short, we are happy to receive suggestions and advice.
 

Receptionists 

Our receptionists mainly deal with organising appointments, clinics, requests for home visits and repeat prescriptions. Sometimes they may need to ask some personal details, but do so on the instructions of the medical/management team. The reception staff are all bound by confidentiality agreements and it is their duty and within their remit to ask questions about your condition so that they can direct you to the appropriate service.

 

GP Earnings

NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice is publicised 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 to form any judgement about GP earnings nor to make any comparison with another practice. 
All GP practices are required to declare the mean (average) earnings for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.  The average pay for GPs working at St James Medical Centre in the last financial year was £78,666 before tax and National Insurance.  This for 2 full time GPS, 4 part time GPs and 1 locum GP who worked at the practice for more than 6 months .
