All our patients are registered with one of our GPs as their named "Usual Doctor" when they join the surgery. This ensures that the same Clinician sees any clinic letters from hospital consultants etc, and can keep an overview of your care.
Blood test, ultrasound and X-Ray results are normally sent to the Clinician requesting them, but they are visible to any Clinician at either Gold Street or Great Chesterford.
From time to time, we may have to change the allocation of Doctors to ensure fairness of workload. We have over 10,000 patients and so are unable to write to everyone individually to advise them who their "Usual Doctor" is. Please ask any of our staff when contacting us should you wish to know. Having a named GP does not prevent you from seeing any other GP in the practice at any time, and all have access to your medical notes. You do not need to take any further action. If you want a particular GP to be your Usual Doctor, we'll do our best to accommodate you, although we will have to consider their overall workload.
If you would like to see a specific GP please ask about their availability when booking an appointment. However, as most GPs work only part-time, there may be a delay before an appointment with your preferred GP is available.
