Your usual/or accountable GP
As a registered patient of this surgery Dr Hughes was recently listed as your registered GP.
Dr Hughes retired from this surgery on 31st March 2015. We were unable to secure a replacement GP for him due to the national shortages of GPs. Therefore we have had to allocate all of Dr Hughes patients to the other partners in the surgery. This will not affect the doctor you normally see or your preferred choice of GP this will remain the same.
You may see whoever you wish subject to availability of course.
In the past The NHS authorities that look after patient registrations would inform all patients when their GP retires, this is no longer the case and it has fallen to practices to inform the patients.
The Government have introduced new measures to make sure that all registered patients have an accountable GP, and that they are informed of that accountable GP.
Please accept this as information regarding your Accountable GP. This will not affect your healthcare in any way or the choice of GP you wish to see.
