The practice is required by the Government under the terms of the latest GP contract to allocate all patients a named GP who is responsible for your overall care provided by the practice.
It is important to remember that you can continue seeing any GP of your choice at the practice.
Individual patients will be informed of their named accountable GP at the first appropriate interaction with the practice.
Your named GP will usually be the named doctor you are registered with. If you wish to be told the name of your named GP, please ask at reception when you are next in the surgery.
Where a patient expresses a preference as to which GP they have been assigned, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate this request.
Your named GP will not be available at all times and if your needs are urgent, you may need to discuss them with an alternative doctor.
