Noticeboard

Named Allocated GP

From April 2015 all practices are required to provide their patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that the surgery provides to them.

The allocated named GP will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to you. This does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice as you currently do. 

You do not need to take any further action. If you wish to be told the name of your named GP, please ask the receptionists when you are next in the surgery. 

If you are unhappy with the named doctor allocated to you and have a genuine concern that this doctor will not be best placed to undertake the responsibilities assigned; then you can ask to be reallocated to another doctor.

ACCIDENT & EMERGENCY

All GPs in this area are no longer funded for minor injuries Whatever the day or time, if you or someone else experiences severe chest pain, loss of blood or suspected broken bones, go to your nearest accident and emergency department or call 999.

Accident and emergency departments are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and can assess all injuries and provide emergency treatment

 


 

NHS 111

 

NHS 111 is a new 24/7 telephone service which patients can call when they need medical help fast, but it’s not a 999 emergency.

 

Calls to NHS 111 are free from both mobiles and landlines, and by the end of the call, the patient

 

will know what to do, where to go and in what timescales.

 

 

Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
