Hi everyone

I work in an 800 patient surgery and looking at practice nurse hours.
Just wondering how many Practice nurses HCA's you have for this size surgery.

Thank you x

Do you mean 8000?
There used to be a calculation but these days its whatever the GP's wish to employ in my experience.

Sorry not much help

Oh my goodness Karen, well spotted, yes I need to add an extra 0

Didn't realise there use to be a calculator, that's okay, I think you're right though but would be interesting to find out about other surgeries.

I have told about 10 hours to every 1000 patients, but I think that is quite generous and I'm not sure where the figure has come from, sorry.

There isn’t any such thing! This is the most comprehensive statistic I found from my internet search.
