Named GP

Since 1st April 2015, the practice has been required under the terms of the latest GP Contract to allocate all patients a named Accountable GP.

All patients will have been registered with one of the GP partners when they first became a patient at Bassett Road Surgery. The partners at Bassett Road are: Drs John Henderson, Mary Horkan, Ros Lucy, Nasir Jamal, Chris Longstaff, Laura Lewis & Elinor Mathieson. (It is not possible to be registered with one of our Salaried GPs.)
The system will also record the name of your usual GP, i.e. the GP with whom you have had the most contact.

For convenience, your named Accountable GP will be your Usual GP.

If you wish to be told the name of your Accountable/Usual 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.

Having a named/usual GP does not prevent you seeing any other doctor in the practice. Your named/usual GP will not be available at all times and if your needs are urgent, you may need to discuss them with another member of our clinical team.
