Named Accountable GP

As from April 2015 all practices are required to provide all their patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for their care and support.

All patients will be allocated a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to you. 

Surnames beginning A - M : Dr Nadeem

Surnames beginning N - Z : Dr Akhtar

Your GP will work with you and other relevant health and care professionals, who are involved in your care, to ensure that your care package meets your individual needs.

This does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice as you currently do.
