Named Accountable GP

The Surgery is required to allocate a named accountable GP to all patients. Your Named Accountable GP will be Dr Shields (Partner) but you can book appointments with whoever you wish to see. If you’re unwell suddenly, you may see any of our doctors or nurses, but if you have a long term condition you will benefit from continuity of care from one particular doctor. Doctors have different skills and we want to ensure you get the best care for your medical needs by enabling you to see your chosen doctor wherever possible.


Our doctors do not work every day, so it may be preferable to see the Duty Doctor if you wish to be seen on a specific date. Please do not be offended if our receptionist asks you for guidance on the nature of your problem in order to direct you to the most appropriate person to help you.

Please note: the rota is subject to change due to holiday cover.
