Named GP Policy
As part of the NHS commitment to providing more personalised care, from June 2015 all practices are required to provide all their Patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides. Further information about Named GP Policy.
Named accountable GP
You will be assigned to a doctor who will be your Named Accountable GP.
You will be added to the practice list, not an individual doctor. You can ask to be seen by any of the doctors in the surgery but it will not always be possible to see the doctor of your choice on a particular day or time.

If you leave the UK for more than 3 months
Your medical records remain with your registered GP but we will provide you with full medical care while you are in the area. If you leave the UK for a period of more than three months the doctor is no longer responsible for your medical care and may not provide repeat medication in your absence.
The NHS online registration form collects your details, a brief outline of your medical history and a record your preferences. This information may be added to your record and will allow us to begin to provide you with medical services.
Please complete one form for each family member.
You can register with us if you are homeless or of no fixed abode but reside within the practice boundary. Further information can be found on the NHS website.
From 2020, adults in England will be considered potential donors unless they choose to opt out or are excluded. For more information please visit the Organ Donation NHS UK where you can also register your decision.
