New patient GP information

You will not be registered with a single GP, but will be able to see whichever GP you prefer on a routine appointment (choice is not usually available for urgent appointments).

However, you will be given a ‘named accountable GP’ in line with requirements laid down by NHS England. This GP will be responsible for the administration work involved in your time with the Practice such as issuing and review repeat medication and reviewing documentation from third parties (such as hospital appointments).

If you would like to know which GP is your names accountable GP, please ask at Reception as we regularly change the registering GP for new patients to keep the patient load equitable between our GP Partners.

Please note: Due to administrative purposes any patient who is registered with a GP who leaves, will be registered with a new GP, this does not mean you have to only see this GP, you can request to see any of our GP’s.

If you require communication in an accessible format such as large print, easy read please contact the surgery.
