Named Accountable GP

We are obliged by Government to ensure that all patients have a "Named Accountable GP." However, this makes no difference to the care you receive or the GP you usually consult with.

You are free to see whichever GP at the surgery you wish, but there will be a specific GP who you were registered with when you joined the practice, and you will have been informed of that at the time of registration and the name of this doctor will be on your NHS Medical Card. This is your "Named Accountable GP".

If for any reason you want to know who your "Named GP" is, then please enquire the next time you are at the surgery.

If there are any particular preferences for your nominated GP, then please put this in writing to the practice where we shall try and accommodate your wishes.

New Registrations Check

All newly registered patients are advised to attend for a health check with the Practice Nurse or our Phlebotomist, this will provide details of your medical history from the start.

Registering your New Baby

You need to register your new baby at the practice as soon as possible. Therefore please complete a GMS1 Registration Form and a Medical History Questionnaire (Child) and send them to your surgery. Please ensure you provide your baby’s NHS Number which will be detailed in their Red Book. Once we have received the form we will register your baby as a patient at this Practice.

The Practice will send you an appointment for a mother and baby post-natal check. This is a 50 minute appointment, 30 minutes for the baby check and 20 minutes for the post-natal. Your baby’s course of routine immunisations will start at 8 weeks and will be given at this appointment. Please remember to bring the red book. If you cannot make this appointment you must notify reception as soon as possible. Please be advised that if you do need to cancel, the next available appointment may be anything up to 4 weeks after that date.

The form can be downloaded from the Registration Forms section of this page, or ask reception for paper copies.
