Dr Ed Sylvester MB BS MRCGP
Ed studied medicine at The London Hospital Medical Collage and qualified in 1995. He then did a number of placements in hospitals in London, Norwich and Lancashire where he gained experience in emergency medicine, endocrinology, medicine for the elderly, paediatrics, obstetrics and gynaecology, dermatology and rheumatology.
Ed moved into General Practice in 2000, taking up a post in Morecambe and becoming a partner in 2005. His practice merged with other GP practice which gave Ed the opportunity to take the clinical lead for the Cancer Gold Standard, child health surveillance services and child protection services, as well as specialising in minor surgery and joint injections.
Ed joined Liphook Village Surgery in the autumn of 2011 as Partner and became Senior Partner in 2015. He is married with a young family. Ed is a keen walker, both long distance and hill walking, and also enjoys adventure travel.
Charlotte trained in London and started working as a GP in outer London. She moved to Sussex in 2004 and joined Liphook Village Surgery working as a GP here for three years. Subsequently she moved to take up a Parternship in Chichester where she worked for a number of years before returning to Liphook Village Surgery to be closer to home and her children's school.
Charlotte lives in West Sussex near Haslemere with her husband, three children and the family's dog.
Dr Steve Buckley has now joined the Liphook Village Surgery team. He has transferred here from Swan Surgery as part of the GP Partner’s commitment to cross-site working as a result of the merger with Swan surgery and shall be part of the Liphook team for the next year.
Steve qualified from Nottingham University Medical School in 1998. He undertook general practice training in The Portsmouth Hospitals, then worked in Australia for a year before joining Swan Surgery as a full-time partner in 1994.
In 1999, following a period of further education, I was approved as a trainer for aspiring GP’s and I continue to supervise GP registrars. During Steve’s time at Swan Surgery, he has enjoyed all aspects of general practice, developing an interest in child health and dermatology. Steve teaches and is GP lead on the Hampshire Child Health Surveillance course. He also works as a clinical assistant in the dermatology department for the Portsmouth Hospitals Trust.
Emma completed her training in Sheffield in 2009 and moved to Wiltshire to complete GP training in 2011. She has completed rotations in obstetrics, gynaecology, paediatrics, psychiatry and general medicine. Emma has a keen interest in women’s health and has completed the Diploma in Sexual Health and Family Planning. She can fit implants for contraception and is completing training to be able to fit coils.
Emma moved with her young family to Hampshire in 2018 and lives with her husband and daughter in Petersfield. I enjoy walking, travelling and learning to speak Spanish.
Dr Gurung is a qualified doctor who is training to become a GP through Swan Medical Group. He is closely supervised by Dr G Cunliffe one of our senior trainer GPs.
NHS England Publication of GP Net Earnings 2017/18
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 GP’s working in Liphook Village Surgery in the last financial year was £65,958 before tax and National Insurance. This is for one full time GP and three part time GPs who worked in the practice for more than six months.
NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice is publicised, and the required disclosure is shown above. 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.
