The Department of Health require us to allocate all patients to a Named GP who is responsible for oversight of a patient's care. You can ask for the name of this GP and if you are unhappy with this allocation we will do our best to accommodate your wishes. This in no way changes your right to see any doctor you wish and you should book appointments with the doctor of your choice.
Not all of our doctors work full time in the surgery and most have other medical interests which benefit the practice or wider community. This, and demand from other patients, are two of the reasons you may not be able to see a particular doctor in the timeframe you wish but we will try to book you with the doctor of your choice. However, to improve continuity of care for patients with long term conditions we recommend that you alternate with 2 doctors wherever possible.
