Change of GP within the Practice

The practice runs a personalised list system which means upon registering you and your family members will always see the same GP unless he/she is on annual leave.

We do appreciate though,  that on rare occasions patients sometimes may wish to change GP’s within the practice whilst staying on the surgery list.In order to do this you would need to write into the practice requesting a change of GP and the  reason why.  Practice management will then run an audit and see which other GP’s have spaces on their lists and make the change if possible.

Whilst we will always strive to accommodate such requests, it should be noted that frequent changes of GP is not practical or advisable for your continuity of care.  All GP’s adhere to the same strict NHS guidelines in relation to referrals and prescribing.  For patients who make  frequent requests to change their registered GP, it may be advisable to register at another practice in the area.
