If you are already registered to book appointments and order repeat medication you will still need to complete a consent form for this new service.

Those patients who are aged 75 years or over or who have been identified at risk of hospital admission will already have a named GP and be aware of this.
You do not have to see your named GP, you can continue to book appointments for whichever GP you wish. Please ask our reception team if you would like to know who your named GP is. All new patients will be allocated a named GP when they register. If you wish to change your named GP please inform us and we will do our very best to accommodate your request, although this cannot be guaranteed due to the workload of our GPs.
