The practice is required by the Government under the terms of the GP contract to allocate all patients aged 75 years and over a named GP.
Individual patients are informed of their named GP at the first appropriate interaction with the practice or via letter. If you wish to know the name of your named GP, please ask the receptionist when you are next in the surgery.
Please do not telephone the practice for this information!
Having a named GP does not prevent you from seeing any other doctor within the group practice. Your named GP will not be available at all times and if your needs are urgent, you should 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 work with other relevant health and care professionals, who are involved in your care, to ensure that the care you receive from our practice meets your individual needs.
Please note the surgery is a group practice, this means you are registered with the practice and can see any GP at the surgery, do not expect to see the named GP at every visit.
