Named GP for all patients
All patients have a named GP who has overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to them.
If you are under 75 and would like to know who this is please contact us. If you have a preference as to which GP this is please let us know and we will make reasonable efforts to accommodate your request. If you do not wish to have a named GP please let us know.
If you are over 75 you will be notified in writing who your named GP is. Your named GP 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.
On a day-to-day basis we do not work on a strict 'personal list' basis and you can see any of the doctors at the surgery. However it is better to see the same doctor for any ongoing problems. There are some specific services and conditions where a particular GP is more appropriate and our reception team can assist you as required.
If you have any questions, or wish to discuss this further with us, please contact us on the main surgery number.
