Named Allocated Gp
All patients will have been allocated a named accountable GP. You can ask at reception or at your next appointment to find out which GP has been allocated to you. If you would prefer a different named GP, let us know and we will do our best to accommodate your choice. You can continue to see any of the GPs in the practice, irrespective of which GP you have been allocated.
