All patients will have a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to them.
What does this mean for our patients?
As one of our patients, you will be given a named GP.
Your named GP will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to you. They will also work with other relevant health and care professionals, who are involved in your care, to ensure that your care package meets your individual needs.
If you have any questions, or wish to discuss this further with us, please contact us.
There will be one doctor in the practice who you will probably look upon as your “own” doctor; they will probably look after your entire family. Because they will know you well and you them, it will usually be advantageous to see them.
If your problem is urgent and your own doctor is unavailable because they are fully booked for that day or away on a course or holiday, the health co-ordinator will be happy to arrange for you to see the nurse practitioner or assessment clinic who will deal with the urgent problem.
This nurse will have overall responsibility for you and is known as your named nurse. They will make sure that any other nurses helping with your care are fully informed.
