Registration Entitlement Letter


Your Named GP

All practices are now required to provide to their patients the name of a GP who will have the overall responsibility for the care and support that their surgery provides to them. Within our practice every patient is allocated a named or "usual" GP at the time of registration, so this ensures that nothing has changed for our patients.

Your named GP will have be responsible for the overall care and support that the practice provides to you, although this does not prevent you from seeing any of the GPs in exactly the same way as you have in the past. We would like to reassure you that you may continue to access all of the practice services in the same way as before. If you arrange to visit a doctor, hospital or care provider from outside the practice you may give them the details of the GP you usually see, however you do not have to give them the details of your named GP.

There is no need for you to take any further action, but if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact the practice. Should you wish to change your named GP details please contact us and we will aim to accommodate your request.

Allocating A Doctor

Although you will be officially registered with the practice, you may see any doctor. We do, however, recommend that you stay with one doctor through any one particular illness.
