Named Accountable GP:From 1st April 2015, practices have been required to allocate a named accountable GP to all their patients. Your Named Accountable GP will be the same doctor as your Registered GP; however if you wish to change this we will do our best to accommodate this so please let us know. Please remember that you are always free to book your appointment with whoever you wish, regardless of your registered GP, and this may change according to the type of health issue you have.
Passport Countersigning:From November 2014, GP can no longer countersign passport photographs. For information on who is now able to sign, click on the link: https://www.gov.uk/countersigning-passport-applications website.
What's New?: We're proud to annouce the arrival of our automated appointment "booking-in" screen for patients, which arrived in later 2014. This will help reception during busy morning surgeries, allowing patients to book themselves in for their appointments during busy times.
Friends and Family Test (FFT): From 1st December 2014 all GP practices will be asking their patients "How likely are you to recommend our GP practice to friends and family if they needed similar care and treatment?". This is a way of gathering feedback, so please feel free to fill in a form and drop it in the box provided. Please note this is not compulsory and all responses will be anonymous.
