Named GP                                                           

As part of the NHS commitment to providing more personalised care, from June 2015 all practices are required to provide all their patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides.

This will not impact your experience at the practice, the provision of appointments, your treatment or which GP you can see.

You may wonder why your named GP is not necessarily the one you see most regularly.  Please be assured that you can still access all of our medical team in exactly the same way as before.

Having a named GP does not guarantee you will always be seen by that GP.

Please note the GP responsible for your care may be subject to change and reallocation in the future.

You can still see any GP of your choice but please bear in mind you are likely to wait longer to see a preferred GP rather than your named one.

You do not need to take any further action, but if you have any questions or wish to know your named GP, please speak to Reception.

GP's at the practice are the named GP for a number of patients that is proportional to their availability.  Please note the other information in the general section.  The practice may need to alter who your named GP is to reflect internal changes.  You will be informed of this when you contact the surgery or need to book an appointment.
