Government guidelines now state that by June of this year, all our patients have to be allocated a named GP.
What does having a Named GP mean for me?
Please be assured, having a Named GP does not mean that you are restricted to seeing only one doctor. You are always welcome to see any GP in the practice, availability permitting.
Your Named GP will serve as a central point of contact for other healthcare professionals and will co-ordinate your care within the surgery. All our GPs have access to your full medical records, and work in close partnership.
What if I want a different Named GP?
Patients were distributed amongst our doctors evenly. We divided our patient list based on surname and assigned each cohort to a GP. This may mean that you have been assigned a GP you have not seen recently. You can still see your regular doctor even if they are not your Named GP.
Where possible we would like to keep patients assigned to their current Named GP, however if this will cause major distress to you, we may be able to accommodate reasonable requests to change Named GPs. Please raise this at your next routine contact with the surgery. (Requests will be considered)
