Named GP

Hersham surgery is required under the terms of the latest GP contract to allocate all patients a named accountable GP. For convenience everyone’s allocated GP is also the named GP they are registered with at the surgery. All patients need to be informed of this and we have been advising our patients as they have been into the surgery, by text message or by letter.

Having a named GP does not prevent you seeing any other doctor in the practice. You may continue to see the doctor of your choosing.

If you are unsure of your named accountable GP, please ask the receptionists when you are next in the surgery.

Please note, there is no need to telephone the practice for this information.
