All patients at Great Western Surgery have a named, accountable doctor, allocated to you by the practice, who is responsible for coordinating your care. However, this does not mean they are the only GP or clinician who will provide care for you; nor that they will be available throughout the working week or have 24 hour responsibility for you. It also does not include vicarious liability for the work of other doctors or health care professionals. The overall responsibility for patient care remains practice based.
You can still talk to or make appointments to see any of our doctors, nurses or other health practitioners, not just your named GP.
