From 1 April 2015, practices are required under the GMS contract, to allocate a named, accountable GP to all patients, including children. All patients registered before 1 April 2015 will be allocated a GP before the end of June 2015. All new patients registering after 1 April 2015 will be informed about their named GP at registration. Please ask your doctor , or the reception staff, who your named, accountable GP is. If a patient requests a particular GP, reasonable efforts will be made to accommodate their preference, recognizing that there are occasions when the practice may not feel the patient’s preference is suitable.
Please be aware that this does not affect your ability to make an appointment with any of the GP’s in the practice of your choice.
