Practices are required under their contract to allocate a named GP to ALL patients including children. All patients at the surgery have been allocated a named GP in order that patients can have a named responsible GP should they require them.
Having a named GP does not prevent you seeing any other doctor in the practice. Your named GP will not be available at all times and if your needs are urgent, you may need to discuss them with an alternative doctor.
You do not need to take any further action. If you wish to be told the name of your named GP, please ask the receptionists when you are next in the surgery. If you are unhappy with the named doctor allocated to you and would like to change please let Reception staff know.
