Named GP for each patient
It is now a requirement that all patients have a named GP. The named GP will be responsible for co-ordinating all services relating to your care. This change will not affect the way in which you book appointments and you will still have a choice as to which GP you see.
Unless previously informed otherwise, your named GP will be:
- Patients with a surname beginning A to L: Dr Mark Adam
- Patients with a surname beginning M to Z: Dr Raj Avula

NHS Friends and Family Test
The NHS Friends and Family Test has been introduced across all GP Surgeries. The test asks you to reflect on your recent experiences of our service and rate accordingly. There will also be one follow up question. The forms will be handed to patients during one clinic each month. However, if you wish to participate and have not been handed a form then please ask at reception.
Results of the test are published on a monthly basis, click here to read them.

How information about you helps us to provide better care
Confidential information from your medical records can be used by the NHS to improve the services offered so we can provide the best possible care for everyone. This information along with your postcode and NHS number but not your name, are sent to a secure system where it can be linked with other health information. This allows those planning NHS services or carrying out medical research to use information from different parts of the NHS in a way which does not identify you.
You have a choice. If you are happy for your information to be used in this way you do not have to do anything. If you have any concerns or wish to prevent this from happening, please speak to practice staff or ask at
reception for a copy of the leaflet How information about you helps us to provide better care or download it here.
