You may be aware that all practices are required to provide all their patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that their surgery provides to them. All patients registered at Stanford Medical Centre already have a named GP though this may not be the GP that you regularly see, or have ever seen.
Your named GP will have overall responsibility for the care and support that we provide to you. This does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice but it is important to maintain continuity of care by seeing the same doctor wherever possible.
You do not need to take any further action, but if you have any questions, or wish to discuss this further with us, please contact us at the above numbers or email us at BHCCG.StanfordMedicalCentre@nhs.net
Please note that our GP's may have to work at other branches to cover sickness, annual leave and branch closures.

Lead Practice Nurse and QOF Manager
Practice nurses are an important part of the clinical team at this practice. For many patients, particularly those with chronic conditions requiring regular monitoring, practice nurses will be the first point of call. The nurses operate an appointments system, but emergencies will be seen without an appointment.
|Healthcare assistants support practice nurses with their daily work and carry out tasks such as phlebotomy (drawing blood), blood pressure measurement and new patient checks. They may act as a chaperone when a patient or doctor requests one.|
