From 1st April 2015 all practices in England are required under the General Medical Services (GMS) contract to allocate a named accountable GP to all patients, including children.
At Sherbourne Medical Centre we do this by way of a 'usual doctor' which is allocated when you register.
If you would like to know who your named GP is, please ask when you next attend the surgery.
There is no requirement within the contract for patients to see their named GP and patients are free to see any GP at the practice, as they currently do.
Please note that whenever a GP leaves or joins the partnership, the patient lists will be reallocated and your named GP may change. We are not able to contact patients individually about such alterations, but we will publicise any partnership changes and advise patients wishing to know who their named GP is to ask at the surgery.
