Registering and Entitlement.
If you are a British National or from an EU country you are automatically entitled to free NHS care in both primary and secondary services. Additionally the UK has reciprocal arrangements with some countries which allow free healthcare treatment in the UK, but there can be restrictions. We will be glad to advise you if you are unsure, or to treat you privately if you are not entitled to NHS treatment. Ask reception for advice.
Please bring your NHS medical card, as well as confirmation of identity (passport, birth certificate or photo-card driving licence) and proof of your residential address (e.g. recent utility bill, council tax bill, bank statement). If you are unsure as to whether or not you are entiltled to NHS treatment come and check at the practice.
As a new patient you will be asked to attend for a health assessment initially with our Health Care Assistant.
We have limited Disabled Access in our surgery. Both Doctors' clinical rooms are on the ground floor. The Nurses room is on the first floor, but if you are disabled she will be able to see you downstairs. Even though our premises are not ideal for disabled access we maintain an effective service for people who have disabilities and will accommodate your needs. We have a disabled toilet on the ground floor.
GP Earnings and Practice Finances
We get about £73 as a basic payment for caring for each patient for a whole year. We work hard to increase this by adding to our income by offering extra services and earn some additional money by taking part in national and local initiatives. The latest publicly available figures (http://www.pulsetoday.co.uk) show that Glebe Street Surgery receives about £109 of funding per patient when this is taken into account. For this, any patient can see us as many times as they need, including face to face, telephone or home visits. For further info click here
