Named GP

Due to new contractual requirements, we now have to allocate all patients with a named GP.

This is a good idea in principle, and in fact we always encourage patients to aim for continuity with one particular doctor, especially for ongoing problems. However, with thousands of patients this is inevitably going to involve an automated process, leaving us with the situation that people will on paper have a ‘named GP’ but in practice will be seeing a different regular doctor.

Please be reassured that the allocation of a named GP does not commit you to seeing that particular doctor.

However, if you are new to the practice, or do not already have a regular doctor, then your named GP would be a good first port of call when choosing pre-booked appointments (as opposed to same day access appointments, where the emphasis is on access rather than continuity). If you do not know who your named GP is, and wish to find out, please contact the practice.

 

Please note that eConsults are switched off when capacity is reached, and a banner will appear above when this happens.
This is generally around 1-2pm each day but can be sooner if demand is very high.

Urgent problems will always still be attended to, and phone lines remain open for urgent problems even when routine capacity is reached.
