Named GP

As of April 2015, under NHS GP contract, practices were required to allocate a named, accountable GP to all patients (including children). This follows on from changes in 2014 when all patients aged 75 and over were to be provided with a named GP.

  • This does not mean that the named GP has 24hr responsibility
  • This does not mean that the named GP will be the only clinician who will provide care to that patient.
  • This does not affect your right to see any GP of your choice.

It might not always be possible for patients to see their named GP on the day, although we try to make this happen. Our GPs all have access to and share medical records.

  • All new patients registering with the practice will be advised of their ‘named GP’ on registration.

You may also ask for this information at Reception when visiting the practice or check via your online services account or the NHS app.
