From April 2014 as part of the contract change for 2014-15, all patients aged 75 and over will have a named GP who will be responsible for the care and support that our surgery provides to them. We hope this will provide and continue to promote the continuity of care for our patients who are over 75 years.

As one of our patients in this age group, you have been given a named GP. Your named GP will ensure that you receive the best possible level of care and support from our Surgery and will work with other relevant healthcare professionals, who are involved in your care, to ensure that your care meets your individual needs.

If however you wish to change the GP please let the surgery know and your records can be altered.Alternatively at the next routine appointment please let the Receptionists know and they can forward your request to the Practice Manager. we are using this method as an aid to inform our patients who are aged over 75 to engage with us regarding their preference for a 'Usual GP'.
