Named Allocated GP
NHS England require each registered patient to have a named allocated GP. Patients can ask at any time who their named allocated GP is. Patients have the option to request a specific named GP (requests will be considered). However, we do NOT operate a 'personal list' operation at Carrington House, this means patients can choose to see whichever doctor they prefer at the surgery for their care.
