Extended Hours Appointments

Named Accountable GP

All Patients of Priory Gate now have a named accountable GP. The named GP is largely a role of oversight, with the requirement being introduced to reassure patients they have one GP within the practice who is responsible for ensuring that this work is carried out on their behalf. Dr Beaumont and Dr Tyrrell undertake the bulk of this role, however please ask at Reception if you do not know who your named accountable GP is.
