Named Accountable GP
For many years we have run a "usual Doctor" system where one of the Doctors in the practice takes responsibility for your care. Recently the Government has wanted this extending to all practices and so this has been changed to the "named accountable GP". From our and your point of view this has made no difference, however so that you are aware of who is responsible for your care your prescription repeat ordering slip will tell you.
If you do not have repeat prescriptions you can contact the surgery and ask one of the receptionists. You are of course free to see any of the GPs but it is helpful to know who is "your doctor" as any queries or letters or messages will go to that person.
