NAMED ACCOUNTABLE GP FOR ALL PATIENTS
All registered patients have been allocated a GP responsible for your overall care. Wherever we know, this will be the GP you usually see at the practice as we prefer you to have continuity of care. You can contact the practice to enquire who this is and if you have an alternative preference, we will try to accommodate your request.
OVER 75 HEALTH CHECK
All patients over 75 have had a named GP responsible for your care for the past year. We also have a nurse Ruth Nobes who is contacting patients who we know have multiple health problems for a health check. If however, you are over 75 and do not normally attend the practice with health problems, please contact reception to organise a health check.
