Named GP for All Patients
All our patients will be allocated a named GP who has overall responsibility for your care. You can book appointments with any doctor, but it's better to see the same person for ongoing problems. If you would like to change your named GP, please let the staff know.
If you are a UK resident and you will be living in our practice area for less than 3 months, you can be treated as a 'temporary resident'.
Regular NHS care is available to UK residents only. If you are not usually resident in the UK then we can provide emergency care only.

They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.
Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups.
