Occasionally patients ask to change their registered GP.
For some years now, patients have registered with a ‘practice’ rather than with an individual practitioner.
Registration at our end is for administrative purposes only and, whilst we encourage patients to see their named doctor (or the doctor who is looking after them) for continuity – ultimately we feel that it is the patient’s choice and so you can see whomever you choose.
All we would ask is that you keep to the same doctor. This is beneficial both to your clinical care and also helps to build doctor/patient relationships.
It is not necessary to change your registration.
