Named GP

From the 1st April 2015, all GP practices are required, by NHS England, to allocate ALL patients with a named accountable GP.  Your named accountable GP will oversee the co-ordination of your care with other health professionals.  However, your named GP does not take on 24-hr responsibly for your care; they will purely oversee the care that you receive. This does not mean that you have the right to see your named GP every time you book an appointment.

All patients can express who they would like to see, however, this may not always be possible due to appointment availability with that GP.   If you would like to know your named GP, please contact the practice.
