Named Accountable GP

From 1st April 2015, under our NHS contract we were required to allocate a named accountable GP to ALL patients.  Your named accountable GP will be responsible for your overall care.  We have allocated a named accountable GP to exisiting patients and also to all newly registered patients.

How have we done this?

We have allocated patients on the basis of alphabeticalised surnames:

Patients with a surname beginning with A - E: Dr Graham Sharrock 

Patients with a surname beginning with F - K: Dr Sophie Reck

Patients with a surname beginning with L - Q: Dr Ade Taiwo

Patients with a surname beginning with R - Z: Dr Brian Fraser 

If you are aged over 75 years and were registered prior to 1st April 2015 you will have already been allocated a named accountable GP and we will have written to you to informa you of this.  If you are new to the Practice and are aged 75 years and over, your registration pack will detail who your named accountable GP is. 

Please remember that you can see the GP of your choice at the Practice and do not have to see your named accountable GP. Please continue to book your appointments with the GP of your choice.
