Named GP

In accordance with NHS requirements, all of our patients have a “Named GP”

What this means for patients:

  • Patients have a GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that the surgery provides to them
  • Having a named GP does not prevent patients receiving care from another GP, the practice nurse or GP assistant in the Surgery – It also does not mean that they must always see their named GP
  • The practice cannot guarantee that patients will always receive care from their named GP, although the GPs will do their best to accommodate this where patients need to discuss an on-going problem
  • Patients can contact the surgery should they wish to know who their named GP is
  • Patients can express a preference as to which GP partner is their named, accountable GP, and the Practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate this request. Patients will need to contact the Surgery in writing in order to make this request
