All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (e.g. average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.
The average pay for GPs working in Goyt Valley Medical Practice in the last financial year was £59,594 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 3 full time GPs and 1 part time GP who worked in the practice for more than 6 months.
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 any other practice.
We have been awarded the grade of’ Outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission following their recent inspection of the medical practice. Thank you to staff and patients who helped with this proud achievement.

We currently offer the facility for ordering your repeat prescriptions & viewing allergies & adverse reactions online. This is via EMIS Patient Access using our website www.gvmdp.co.uk. If you do not already have a username and password for this system you will need to register for them either using our website or by calling into the practice to register in person.
In addition all systems are in place to allow patients to access booking appointments, ordering repeat prescriptions & view allergies and adverse reactions online.
We are working closely with our clinical software providers to develop appropriate systems for patients to request online access to their detailed coded records using a method that is secure and safeguards the best interests of the patient. We aim for this to be completed by 31st March 2016.
All patients registered at Goyt Valley Medical and Dental Practice for GP services have now been assigned a named GP for administrative purposes. If you would like to know who your named GP is then please ring into the surgery and ask. Please note that this does not in anyway affect your care, you can still continue to see whichever clinician you prefer or whichever is more convenient when making an appointment.
