Named accountable GP
You may already be aware that by March 2016 practices are required to provide all their patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that the practice provides to them. Your named GP has been allocated to you by the practice. If you have a repeat prescription you can find the name of your allocated GP at the bottom of this. If you do not have a repeat prescription and you wish to know who your allocated GP is, please contact the practice 0n ph:01159861128. Please note - You can still talk to or make appointments to see any of our doctors or nurses, not just your named GP. If you have a preference to a particular GP other than the one allocated at registration, please talk to one of our receptionists who will pass your request over to the Practice Manager for re-allocation. All new registrations will be informed at registration of their accountable and named GP.
