Guide to GP Services

The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide here 

Registering with a Doctor

Register with a family doctor and make sure you and your family get access to medical advice and treatment.

Everybody has a right to be registered with a doctor.  If the surgery accepts you as a patient you may go to your new doctor for treatment immediately.
GP's do not have to accept new patients.

If a practice cannot assist you as a patient and you need EMERGENCY treatment, this will be provided.

 

 

Accountable GPs

The practice is required by the Government under the terms of the latest GP contract to allocate all patients a named accountable GP (identified as your usual GP on your medical records).

Please note there is no need to telephone the practice, it is for information only. Please feel free to ask the patient services team, at reception, when you next visit the Surgery who your named doctor is.

Our named Accountable GP's at the practice are:- Dr T Chiddick, Dr D Ganesh, Dr E Goldstein, Dr M D Hammatt, Dr A K Handley, Dr S K L Hay, Dr K Hunter,  Dr E L Maw, Dr S Peachey, Dr J K Shacklock, Dr C J Wright.

Where a patient expresses a preference as to which GP they have been assigned, the practice will make reasonable effort to accommodate this request. Please note that your named accountable GP may change if the GP retires or leaves the surgery. In these cases patients will be assigned another named accountable GP.

Having a Named Accountable GP does not prevent you seeing any other doctor in the practice.
