Your Named GP

River Place Group Practice provide all patients with a named "usual GP" who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to them. We encourage patients to try and see their usual GP where possible, particularly for ongoing problems.  

We need to divide our patients evenly between all of our doctors, so they can manage their workload. Therefore the "registering GP" rotates from week to week based on each GP's list size. We try to keep families under the same usual GP where possible, so new babies will be registered with their mother's usual GP.

Your usual GP will look after your repeat prescriptions, medication reviews and will be forwarded any correspondence received from other services (including hospital clinic letters).

If you wish to be told the name of your usual GP, please ask the Care Navigator Team when you are next in the surgery.

If you have any questions, or wish to discuss this further with us, please contact the practice manager Mr David Currie
