Named GP

Since April 2015 we have been required by the Government under the terms of the GP contract to allocate all our patients a named accountable GP, also at times known as your registered GP.

If you prefer to see another doctor at the surgery you are entirely free to go on doing so exactly as before and if you wish to change your named GP, please ask reception.

Your named accountable GP (or your preferred GP if different) will not be available at all times and if your needs are urgent you may need to discuss them with any available doctor as our practice takes responsibility for your care as a whole and our computer clinical system holds your up-to-date medical record that can be viewed by all our doctors and nurses whenever you consult them.

If you are unsure of who is your named doctor please ask reception.

New patients are allocated a doctor on registration.
