As part of the GMS contract we have a contractual requirement to notify our patients that they each have a named GP who is responsible for their overall care at the practice.
In the last year we have been notifying patients opportunistically who their named GP is. If you haven’t been notified, please contact the practice where a member of reception will be able to answer your query.
Although all patients have a named accountable GP, this does not stop you from seeing a different GP should you wish to.
