All patients registered at the practice have a 'named GP' on their records. This was allocated when you first joined the practice. If that GP left since that time you will have been re-allocated to an existing partner.
You may feel that one of our GPs is your usual doctor that you choose to see if they are available. That may not match to the allocated doctor on your records. When speaking to a receptionist you can ask for your usual doctor to be your allocated named GP on your records.
Having a usual named GP who knows you has been shown to improve a persons medical care. It is also important when receiving letters. Letters from specialists and other sources will be given to the doctor who made the original referral. If that doctor is not available, or there was no referral, the letter will be given to your named GP. Prescription requests are also given to your named GP.
