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. Although you are registered with Alresford Surgery rather than an individual GP we have, for many years, operated a 'usual GP' system for administrative purposes (this ensures all test results, x-rays, hospital letters etc are checked).
For convenience your named accountable GP will be the named usual GP.
If you wish to be told the name of your accountable/usual 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/usual GP if you wish. Alternatively you can discuss these with any of the other doctors.
Having a named/usual GP does not prevent you seeing any other doctor in the practice, you can still book to see any doctor you prefer. Your named/usual GP will not be available at all times and if your needs are urgent, you may need to discuss them with an alternative doctor.
