We work to promote the benefits of continuity of care, and to ensure that your doctor knows you as an individual.
There are benefits to you in being able to see the same GP for your appointments and to know that they are aware of you and your family’s situation. For this reason we encourage that your whole household is registered with us to allow us to co-ordinate your care where this is beneficial.
