Change of Clinical System

The Village Surgery will be changing the clinical system used within the practice.  This system will go live on the 19th June.  We thank patients for their patience during the change over period.

The Village Surgery will be using the clinical system ‘SystmOne’ which allows integrated care with other healthcare organisations who also use the system, such as hospitals and district nurses, to help improve patient care.  To find out more about how SystmOne affects your care please follow the link below.

Named accountable GP for all patients

You may be aware that all practices are required to provide all their patients, including children, with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that their surgery provides to them.  All patients at this practice have a named GP, to find out who your named GP is please visit us in practice or give us a call on 01670 712 821.


Can patients choose their own named GP?

In the first instance, patients should simply be allocated a named GP. However, if a patient requests a particular GP, reasonable efforts should be made to accommodate their preference, recognising that there are occasions when the practice may not feel the patient’s preference is suitable.

Do patients have to see the named GP when they book an appointment with the practice?

No. Patients can and should feel free to choose to see any GP or nurse in the practice in line with current arrangements.
