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.
