The Long Melford Practice uses GP2GP electronic transfer of records between surgeries for patients registering at or leaving the practice. This enables the clinicians at the practice to see your previous GP records much more quickly.
This forms part of our IT Statement of Intent
Under the terms of the current GP contract GP practices are required to provide all patients with a named GP.
As one of our patients you have been allocated a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support our surgery provides to you. You will be informed of your named GP at the ealriest appropriate opportunity.
This does not prevent you from seeing any other GP.
Your named GP will not be available at all times and if you have urgent needs you may need to see an alternative doctor.
