Patients Allocated 'Named' GP This year GP Surgeries are advising all patients that they each have an individual “named” GP. Whilst each patient is registered with the Surgery as a whole, one of our GPs will be named as your usual Doctor on your medical record. You do not need to make sure you see your named Doctor when you ask for an appointment, you are still entitled to ask to see any of our Doctors and Nurses. They all have access to your full record. If you would like to know the name of your named Doctor, please ask at Reception.
