From the 1st April 2015, the practice is requied under the terms of the latest GP contract to allocate all patients a named accountable GP. As a practice, we have always allocated a named GP when patients register with the practice. The named GP will have overall responsiblity for the care that the surgery provides to you. Where a patient expresses a preference as to which GP they have been allocated, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate this request. Most patients will know who their named/usual GP is. If you wish to be told the name of your named GP, please ask when you next attend the surgery.
PLEASE NOTE, having a named GP does not prevent you seeing any other doctor in the practice. Your named GP will not always be available and you may on occasions have to see/speak another GP in the practice.
