As part of the commitment to more personalised care for patients, Practices are required to allocate a named GP to all patients. The named GP will have overall responsibility for their your care and support, with lead responsibility for the co-ordination of all appropriate services.
Where a patient expresses a preference to which GP they have been assigned, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate this request.
Having a named GP does not prevent you from seeing any other Doctor in the Practice. Your named GP will not be available at all times and there may be times when you need to consult with other medical professionals in the practice, which you are free to do at any time.
