You may be aware that from April 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 to them.
All patients, including children have been allocated a named, accountable GP. In our practice this is denoted by your "Usual GP".
The Usual GP takes on responsibility for your overall care at the practice.
You will be informed of your Usual GP when you register, however you can also check who your Usual GP is at any time by asking any member of staff.
