You may be aware that all practices are now required to provide their patients with the name of a GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that their surgery provides to them. At our practice every patient is given a named or “usual” GP at the time they register, so nothing has changed for our patients.
Although your named GP will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our practice provides to you, this does not prevent you from seeing any of the GPs in exactly the same way as you have in the past. We should like to reassure you that you may continue to access all of our services in exactly the same way as before. Should you visit a doctor, hospital or care provider from outside the practice you may give them the details of the GP you usually see, you do not have to give them the details of your named GP.
You do not need to take any further action, but if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact the practice. Should you wish to change your named GP details please contact us, and we will aim to accommodate your request.
