All patients will be allocated a named accountable GP.
The role of the named GP is to take responsibility for the co-ordination of all appropriate services and ensure they are delivered where required (based on the named GP’s clinical judgement) to each of their patients. The named GP will deal with all correspondence received from hospitals and other organisations regarding your care, and will review any repeat medication you have.
Having a “named GP” does not mean that this is the only doctor or clinician at the practice who will provide you with care. You do not have to see your named GP you can continue to feel free to choose to see any GP. If you need to be seen urgently this may be with any of the doctors working that day.
If you have a preference for your named GP please let us know and we will make every effort to accommodate this request.
We have been informing patients of their named GP on an ad-hoc basis on contact with the practice. If you want to know who your named GP is, please ask our receptionists who will be happy to help.
