All patients now have the right to access some of their medical records on- line. Please speak to the Practice Manager Glenn Walker if you would like access to this facility.

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.
