All GP practices are now required by the Government, under the terms of the latest NHS/GP contract, to allocate patients to a named accountable GP.
This would be the doctor allocated to you at registration. If you wish to be told the name of your Accountable GP, please ask the receptionists when you next contact the surgery.
Having a named GP does not prevent you seeing any other doctor in the practice. 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.
Your named GP will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to you. They will also work with other relevant health and care professionals, who are involved in your care, to ensure that your care package meets your individual needs.
Please note: there is no need to telephone the practice for this information.
