Named GP for Every Patient
All patients registered with a GP surgery in England and Wales now need to be allocated a named GP. To find out who your named GP is please ask any of our reception team and they’ll be able to tell you.
All new patients registering with the practice will be allocated Dr Manchineni as their ‘named GP’.
Having a ‘named GP’ does not mean that this is the only doctor you should see, or will be able to see. All practices are contractually obliged to make these changes which are put in place by NHS England.

Opting Out of Information Sharing
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 of 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 for any GP earnings, nor to make any comparisons with other practices. The average earnings for GPs working in the Concord Medical Practice in the last financial year (2014/15) was £97,554 before taxation and national insurance. This is for 3 full time GPs and 1 part time who worked in the practice for more than 6 months.
