Named GP

Named GP

The practice is required by the Government under the terms of the latest GP contract to allocate all patients a named accountable GP.

It is important that you are aware that this is purely an administrative exercise and does not change the way in which we operate or affect your ability to make an appointment or speak with any of the GPs in the practice.

If you wish to be told the name of your accountable GP, please ask the receptionists when you are next in the surgery.

You may wonder why your allocated GP is not necessarily the one you see most regularly. Please be assured that you can still access all of our medical team in exactly the same way as before.

If you have a preference and would like to request a particular doctor at the practice to be your named GP please talk to one of our receptionists.

Having a named GP does not prevent you seeing any other doctor in the practice. Your named GP will not be available at all times and if your needs are urgent, you may need to discuss them with an alternative doctor.
