Alcohol Awareness Week is a chance for the UK to get thinking about drinking. It’s a week of awareness-raising, campaigning for change, and more. This year, the theme is Change. The week runs 19-25th November

Named Accountable GP
From 1 April, 2015 GP practices are required under the General Medical Services (GMS) Contract, to allocate a named, accountable GP to all patients, including children. The Practice has decided that your named, accountable GP will be the doctor you are registered with. If you are unsure who is your named GP and wish to know, please ask the Reception staff the next time you are at the Surgery.
Should you express a wish to be changed to another GP the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate this request.
Please be aware that having a named GP does not affect your ability to make an appointment with any of the GPs at The Avenue Surgery.
Information for our Diabetic Patients
The Avenue Surgery is taking part in the National Diabetes Audit (NDA). Please click here for further information. If you are a diabetic patient and would like to opt out please let a member of Reception know.

Closed circuit television (CCTV) is installed at The Avenue Surgery premises for the purposes of patient, staff and premises security. Cameras are located at various places on the premises and images from the cameras are recorded. CCTV is used in accordance with the Data Protection Act and Home Office and Information Commissioner’s Office Codes of Practice.

GP Net Earnings
NHS England requires that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice is published 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, or to make any comparisons with any other practice.
The average pay for GPs working at the Avenue Surgery in the last financial year was £126,250 before Tax and National Insurance. This is for 3 full-time GPs who worked in the practice for more than six months.
