Named GP

From 1st April 2015 onwards practices are required, to allocate a named accountable GP to all practices, including children. This GP is responsible for the patients overall care. However, patients can still book appointments or telephone consultations with any GP in the practice.

New patients registering from 1st April 2015 onwards will be informed of their named GP at the point of registration.

If you were registered with us before 1st April 2015 and were aged over 75 or took part in the Unplanned Emergency Admissions service provision you will have already been allocated a named accountable GP and notified in writing – this named GP will remain the same and will not change.

Should you express a wish to change your named GP we will do our best to accommodate your wishes. Please contact the surgery requesting the change.

You can find the name of your allocated GP on your repeat prescription request slip. If you do not have a repeat prescription and wish to know who you’re allocated GP is, please contact the surgery.
