Important Patient Information about your named GP

As of 1st April 2015 ALL patients, (including children), should be informed that they have been allocated a named GP and this GP will be responsible for your overall care at the practice.

So what does this mean for you?

All our patients are allocated a named doctor. This does not mean you can only see this GP, as a Belvidere Medical Practice patient you are quite within your rights to book, in advance, with the doctor you choose to see or continue to see the GP who is available on the day. Therefore you should see no change in the day to day running of the practice or your care.

However, if you wish to know who your allocated named GP is, you will find it on the right hand side of your prescription or we can give you this information at your request when you next attend the surgery or by contacting us. If you would like your allocated named GP changing we will make reasonable efforts to accommodate your request.

Please remember this DOES NOT affect which doctor you usually see at the practice.

 

We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.

Please do come along to our patient group meeting - ask at reception for date of next meeting.
