Named responsible GP

All patients will now have a named "Responsible Doctor" who will act as a point of contact to coordinate your care. To keep this process simple we have made your registered Doctor your Responsible Doctor.

Many patients see other Doctors within the Practice, this is absolutely fine - there is no need to change who you see. The "Responsible Doctor" is more of an administrative role, but they will will work closedly with the Doctor you normally see in helping to coordinate your care.

You can get expert advice and treatment for many Minor ailments from your local Pharmacist
