About us

Unknown-6Liberty Bridge Road Practice is a new GP practice in the Sir Ludwig Guttmann Health and Wellbeing Centre, developed specifically for East London residents.

The Centre was originally used for athletes and visitors during the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Now it has been transformed to become home for the Practice, East Village Community and secondary care services, such as Homerton Hospital, Moorfields Eye Hospital and Barts Dental Hospital.

A large practice, currently almost 10 thousand patients, we accept registrations from patients across Newham. Being part of the Hurley Group gives our patients certain privileges such as online consultations, a clinical governance team ensuring high clinical standards are met and an organisational structure ensuring accountability and maintenance of high standards of customer care.

We value our patients and aim to offer the best possible care to each individual. All our team members are passionate about the NHS and have all the necessary training to ensure that your visit is a safe and pleasant experience.

 


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 Liberty Bridge Road Practice in the last financial year was £29,557.00 before tax and National Insurance.  This is for 1 full time GPs, 8 part time GPs and 3 locum GPs who worked in the practice for more than six months.

More about us…

At LBRP we have 6 GPs, 1 GP registrar (GPR), 1 Physician’s Associate (PA), 1 Clinical Pharmacist, 2 Practice Nurses (PN), 1 Healthcare Assistant (HCA), 1 Lead Administrator, 2 administrators, 1 Building Services Manager and 7 receptionists.

All our receptionists and administrators are full time and work on a shift basis. If you have an admin query, for example you would like to ask a question about your referral letter, or haven’t received your test results from hospital, you can ask to be placed on our admin clinic. This is a virtual clinic whereby your name and query is placed for an administrator to follow up. An administrator will call you back and help you with your query over the phone so please make sure that your contact details are correct.

Our Health Care Assistant is available for blood tests, new patient health checks, NHS Health Checks for over 40s, Diabetes foot checks, spirometry, ear syringing, adult immunisations (Flu, Shingles and pneumonia), blood pressure monitoring and basic asthma checks.

The role of Physician’s Associate is new to General Practice in the UK and LBRP is one of the first practices to employ a full time PA. PAs support doctors in the diagnosis and management of patients. They are trained to perform a number of roles including: taking medical histories, performing examinations, analysing test results, and diagnosing illnesses under the direct supervision of a doctor. Our PA is also trained to triage patients and treat minor ailments as well as conduct Health Checks for patients with Learning Disabilities.

We are also privileged to be taking part in the Newham Clinical Pharmacists Pilot scheme. We have a part time Clinical Pharmacist who will be helping with medicine management within the practice. This means conducting medication reviews, overseeing the prescribing systems within the practice and helping with patient medication compliance.
