Changes To The Appointment System

We are aware that over the last few months getting an appointment with a doctor has become more and more difficult.

From Friday 1st April, due to patient demand for appointments continuing to be far greater than the number of appointments available, the doctors have implemented a “Telephone Triage” system.

Named Accountable GP for all patients

All patients at Wellington Medical Centre have a named, accountable doctor who is responsible for co-ordinating their care.

Your named doctor will be allocated to you by the practice.

You can still talk to or make appointments to see any of our doctors or nurses, not just your named GP.

If you would like to know who your named GP is, please contact reception by phone on (01823) 663551, by email to or call in to the medical centre. Your named GP can also be found on any prescriptions you have.

If you have a preference and would like to request a particular doctor at the practice to be your named GP please talk to one of our receptionists. We will try to accommodate your request where possible.

GP Net Earnings

All GP practices are required to declare the mean net earnings (eg. Average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice. This is required in the interests of the greater public accountability recognising GP pay is ultimately funded from tax paid by the public.
The average pay for GPs working in Wellington Medical Centre in the last financial year was £38,180 before tax and national insurance. This is for 3 full time GP’s and 9 part time GP’s.
