Accountable / Named GP
From the 1st of April 2015, the practice is required under the terms of the latest GP contract to allocate all patients a named accountable GP. This is an administrative exercise in order that patients can have a named responsible GP should they require them. Your named accountable GP will be the named doctor you are registered with. If you wish to be told the name of your accountable GP, please ask the receptionists when you are next in the surgery.
Please note: there is no need to telephone the practice for this information. If you need input from a variety of health professionals, then you can discuss these with the named GP if you wish. Alternatively you can discuss these with any of the other doctors. Those of you whom receive regular repeat medications will have your named GP printed on the white repeat medication slip. Having a named GP does not prevent you seeing any other doctor in the practice. Your named GP will not be available at all times and if your needs are urgent, you may need to discuss them with an alternative doctor.
We are always happy to see any relatives or friends staying with you if they need a Doctor or Nurse. They will need to fill out a short form for the information to be returned to their own Doctor. Please arrive 10 minutes before your appointment to allow time for completion of the necessary forms.
Teaching and Research
As a teaching practice, medical students spend part of their training with us from Keele University. The Practice is also involved with medical research in partnership with Primary Care Reasearch at Keele University. We would value your co-operation with both of these, but we understand if you do not want to be involved.
This Practice supports the Government’s NHS zero tolerance zone campaign. GPs and their Staff have the right to care for others without fear of being attacked or abused. We ask that you treat your GP and Practice Staff with courtesy and consideration.
