We are currently looking for a Maternity GP Locum (8 sessions/wk), Advanced Nurse Practitioner, Practice Nurse (up to 37 hrs/wk) and a Health Care Support Worker (30 hrs/wk).  For further information please click here.

Named GP

The 2015-2016 GP contract in England extends the requirement to provide a named accountable GP to all patients, rather than just those over 75. The contract remains ‘practice based’, so overall responsibility for patient care has not changed.

The role of the named GP is to take responsibility for the co-ordination of all appropriate services and ensure they are delivered where required (based on the named GP’s clinical judgement) to each of their patients.

Having a named doctor means that your named doctor will:

  • take the lead for ensuring that we offer you all the appropriate services that we can,
  • work with relevant associated health and social care professionals where necessary for your care,
  • help to ensure that we recognise and respond to your physical and psychological needs,
  • ensure that you have access to a health check if you request one.

Having a named doctor does not mean that they will:

  • be available 24 hours a day
  • that you will have personal access to the doctor throughout the working week,
  • that this will be the only doctor or clinician at the practice who will provide you with care.

You do not have to see your named GP when you book an appointment; you can and should feel free to choose to see any GP or nurse in line with current arrangements and the Practice already operates personal lists for GPs and all patients have their own named, usual GP.

We have been, and will continue to, inform patients of whom their named GP is when they contact the practice, however, if you wish to have this information then please contact the reception who will be happy to inform you of your Named GP.
