Dr Dunne originally set up the Swan Surgery in 1988 as a single-handed practice. Today it is a busy, semi-rural, dispensing, training practice with six partners located in a purpose built surgery complete with an operating theatre suite. In 2012 the practice took over the responsibility for Forest Surgery in Brandon as well as its current contract for Swan Surgery. With both surgeries we employ approximately 55 staff who work closely with other members of the wider healthcare team. At both surgeries we strive to deliver excellent clinical care in a patient focused manner.
Emma Derbyshire, Crispin Dunne, Evelin Hanikat, Matthew Mailey and Peter Neale and Kirsty Reid are partners working between 5 and 8 sessions per week, they work across both our Surgeries.
At present the practice provides a wide range of services including health promotion, baby and child development and immunisation clinics, travel clinics, family planning, cytology and maternity services and a range of minor surgery. We also provide chronic disease management clinics for asthma, diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and coronary heart disease.
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 Swan and Forest Surgeries in the last financial year was £78,823 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 6 full time GPs, 5 part time GPs and 5 locum GPs who worked in the practice for more than six months.
As a service provider we have a contract with West Suffolk Clinical Commissioning Group to perform vasectomy operations and enhanced minor surgery for patients referred by general practitioners in the WSCCG area.
