General Information

Primary Care Networks

Park Parade Surgery is part of the Mowbray Square Primary Care Network which is made up of East Parade Surgery, The Spa Surgery and us, and totals 30,000 patients.


All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (ie. average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.

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, nor to make any comparison with any other practice.

The average pay for GPs working in Park Parade Surgery in the last financial year [2019/20] was £62,479 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 1 full time GP and 4 part time GPs who worked in the practice for more than six months.

Named GP

From June 2015 all patients registered with the practice will have been given a named accountable GP. This is a contractual requirement but patients are entitled to choose to see any GP or nurse in the practice. A named accountable GP takes responsibility for the co-ordination of all appropriate services for their patients and ensures they are delivered. If you wish to know who your named GP is you can ask a member of the reception team.

Minor Eye Service

Harrogate and Rural District Clinical Commissioning Group (HaRDCCG) have commissioned a Minor Eye Conditions Service which can be accessed at 20 Optician Practices across the Harrogate and Rural District.

Patients may contact the service directly and make an appointment if they are concerned about minor eye problems. The service can see patients within 24 hours if urgent or within a few days if routine; they will also refer on to the Hospital Eye Service if required.

Online Support Site for People with Type 1 Diabetes

It can be hard for those newly diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes to know which websites to trust, so NHS England has made it easier by collecting all the useful NHS-trusted links in one place on the website. The new pages will help people with Type 1 diabetes to gain the knowledge and confidence to manage their condition. The site has been developed with NHS Digital, Diabetes UK and people living with Type 1 diabetes.

The site provides links to practical help on injecting insulin and checking blood glucose levels – as well as useful advice around living with the condition.

Healthcare professionals are being encouraged to refer newly diagnosed patients, their parents and carers to the site as a one stop shop for Type 1 diabetes support. See the new pages at
