Named GP Policy

On registration with Morland House Surgery, all patients are allocated a named accountable GP who will be their ‘usual doctor’. We do this to ensure continuity of care and maintain a patient centred approac, and we encourage you to make appointments with your usual doctor whenever possible.

Where a patient expresses a preference as to which GP they have been assigned, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate this request.

Having a named GP will not prevent you seeing any other doctor in the practice. Also it is inevitable that your named GP will not be available at all times that you require an appointment. If your needs are urgent, you may therefore need to discuss them with another doctor in the practice.

If you are unsure of who your usual doctor is, please check with our reception team when you are next in the surgery.
