Kingsway Surgery remains open and accessible, keeping our community safe during Covid 19 and beyond
In autumn 2019 Dr Everett, the sole partner at Brickfields Surgery, decided to retire. As Dr Everett had no partner to take on the practice there was a real risk of patients being forced to change to other surgeries who were able to take them, possibly away from South Woodham Ferrers.
To avoid this process called “list dispersal”, NHS England and NHS Mid Essex Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) entered into talks with neighbouring practices.
In November 2019, Kingsway Surgery agreed to take contractual responsibility for the running of Brickfields surgery; with support from NHS England and Mid Essex CCG, this information was publicised on the surgery website and in the local Focus magazine.
NHS England stipulated that the two practices should then endeavour to merge following an interim period of stabilisation that allowed their working practices to align.
The two practices have applied to merge, the start of a process which in any event should have no visible effect for patients at either practice.
We will continue to keep you updated as the merger process develops.

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 pay for GPs working in Kingsway Surgery in the last financial year (2017/18) was £113,316 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 2 full time GP(s), 0 part time GP(s) and 0 locum(s) who worked in the practice for more than six months.
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, or to make any comparison with any other practice.
We have a wide range of services available at Kingsway Surgery. Services such as immunisations, baby clinics and diabetes clinics are all available within your local, friendly surgery.
