All patients, including children, are allocated a named, accountable GP
who is responsible for their overall care at the practice.
This is referred to as your 'Usual GP'. You should be informed of your Usual GP when you register
but you can also check who this is with any member of staff at any time. We encourage you to see
your Usual GP where possible, particularly for on-going problems, so we can provide you with better continuity of care.
If he/she is fully booked, you can ask for an appointment with another Doctor or a Minor Illness Practitioner.
We will make reasonable efforts to accommodate requests to change Usual GP.
All GP practices are now required to declare the mean earnings
NHS services to patients

For St George Health Centre, mean earnings (average pay) for 2015/16 was £67,595 before Tax &
National Insurance, based on 2 full time GPs, 6 part-time GPs and 0 locum GPs.
The history of the
GP practices are part of the National Health Service (NHS) - there are some
useful resources explaining how the NHS works on the
Kings Fund website
