Named Accountable GP

All patients including children now have an allocated, named accountable GP – this is now recorded on every patient’s records.

This does not mean you have to see your named GP, you can still see any GP or Nurse in the practice as before.

If you wish to see a particular GP then you may have to wait longer to see your preferred choice. Should you wish to know who your accountable GP is, then please do not hesitate to contact the surgery.

If you have a preference to a particular GP, the practice will make reasonable effort to accommodate this.

Risk Profilling and Care Management

Privacy Notice

Risk profiling is a new NHS service that will help your GP spot whether you might need early treatment or care.

Your health information will be profiled in a local NHS data warehouse and the results will be seen only by your GP and healthcare professionals involved in  your care pathway.

NHS security systems will protect the information from beginning to end.

If you have any other concerns about the use of your information, please contact the Practice Manager.


Online Registration

Practice online access is now available to all our patients. To register for this service please visit the reception window at either one of our surgeries to collect your patient access information leaflet. All reception staff are happy to explain and help you with the registration process.
