Continuity Of Care
When you register with the surgery you have the right to express your preference of GP but the practice cannot guarantee that this person will be available when you need to see a GP, especially in an emergency.
As a result we won’t always be able to offer an appointment with the GP of your choice in an emergency, so if you want to see a particular GP you might need to wait a little longer. Patients should be aware that all GPs have access to their medical records and, therefore can provide continuity of care.
When the GPs are away, we employ locum GPs in order to maintain the service for patients. The reception staff will inform you if there is a locum GP covering the surgery.
