As you may be aware, the government has stipulated that all patients must have a Named GP. At the Garstang Medical Practice, your Named GP is the same as your Registered/Usual GP. This does NOT mean you cannot still choose which doctor you see and you need not be concerned if your Named GP is not your preferred doctor of choice. We do not restrict patients to see a specific doctor or run individual GP lists at our surgery and patients may see any of the doctors. All the doctors have access to your patient records and at all times can view the care you have most recently received from another doctor or nurse within the practice and they liaise with each other closely with regards to patient care as necessary.

If you are not aware who your Named GP is and you would like to know, then please ask at reception the next time you visit the surgery. This information is also printed on the right hand side of your repeat prescriptions. If you have any concerns regarding this matter, please write to our Medical Services/IT Manager, Mrs Hannah Routh, who will be happy to address this with the doctors on your behalf.
