Blood Tests

Named GP for all patients

From April 2015, all practices are required under their contract to allocate a 'named GP' to each of their patients. The 'named GP' will have overall responsibility for the care and support that the surgery provides for our patients.

This does not mean that you will only see your named GP and your care will be provided by the most appropriate member of the clinical team.

Having a 'named GP' will not prevent you from seeing any other doctor or nurse of your choice. You will not need to take any further action. If you have any queries regarding your 'named GP', please ask when you next visit the practice.

If you have a preference for which GP you would like to have as your 'named GP', the practice will make every reasonable effort to accommodate your request.

What could encourage you to self-care more?

We know you are already confident in self caring initially, and that you are keen to try again what you have done in the past (especially if it has worked), self care also means earlier treatment because you are not waiting for the doctor to do something. In this day and age cost is also and issue and with some over-the-counter remedies being cheaper than the cost of a prescription (currently £7.20 per item) it can work out cheaper for you.

But we also know that you are used to a certain way of doing things and maybe you have not thought about going to the pharmacist, or you have had a bad experience in the past or you are worried that there may be a more serious underlying problem than a minor ailment which really does need you to make an appointment to see the doctor.

To make things easier for you, we have compiled a list of some common treatments that pharmacists can provide for common ailments and some typical prices for you to see. This is not an exhaustive list and no doubt if you shop around you may get a better deal.
