From 1st February 2017 the Woolacombe Surgery will  be open:

Named Allocated GP

You may be aware that from April 2015 all practices are required to provide all their patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to them.

 

The allocated named GP will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to you. This does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice as you currently do.

You do not need to take any further action. If you wish to be told the name of your named GP, please ask the receptionists when you are next in the surgery or call the surgery on 01271 863119.  Alternatively this information is available on the top right hand side of your repeat prescription slip.

If you are unhappy with the named doctor allocated to you and have a genuine concern that this doctor will not be best placed to undertake the responsibilities assigned; then you can ask to be reallocated to another doctor.
