Non-urgent advice: Will I be Allocated a Named 'Accountable GP' When I Join the Surgery?

Yes. Once registered with Coastal Medical Partnership, you will be allocated a named 'Allocated GP'.

The named GP is responsible for the coordination and delivery of all appropriate services, where required based on clinical judgement, to each of their patients. You do not need to see your named GP when you book an appointment at the surgery.

You can see a variety of health professionals in addition to a GP, such as:

  • Physician Associate 
  • Advanced Nurse Practitioner or Practice Nurse with Prescribing
  • Practice Nurse or Health Care Assistant
  • Musculoskeletal (MSK) First Contact Physiotherapist
  • Paramedic
  • Health and Well-Being Team
  • Pharmacist or Pharmacy Technician
