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.
The practice manager is involved in managing all of the business aspects of the practice such as making sure that the right systems are in place to provide a high quality of patient care, human resources, finance, patient safety, premises and equipment and information technology. The practice manager supports the GPs and other medical professionals with delivering patient services and also helps to develop extended services to enhance patient care.
|Receptionists provide an important link for patients with the practice and are your initial contact point for general enquiries. They can provide basic information on services and results and direct you to the right person depending on your health issue or query. Receptionists make most of the patient appointments with the GPs and nurses. They also perform other important tasks such as issuing repeat prescriptions and dealing with prescription enquiries, dealing with financial claims, dealing with patient records and carrying out searches and practice audits.|
