Named Doctor for all patients

 In 2014 there was a requirement for the practices to ensure patients who were 75 years and older and patients who might be considered most at risk of avoidable hospital admissions to be allocated a named, accountable doctor.

From April 2015 we are now also required to allocate a named doctor to all patients (including children).

We are currently in the process of completing this task. From July 2015 please ask any member of staff the name of the doctor you have been allocated.

In reality, this will make no difference whatsoever to which doctor you prefer to see. We will always try to accommodate any patient who asks to see a named doctor - and an appointment is not available at the time of request we either an appointment with another GP - or the patient can choose to wait and try and book in with their preferred doctor at another time.

Please speak to any member of staff if you have any queries regarding this initiative.
