Named Allocated GP
NHS England require each registered patient to have a named allocated GP. New patients will be informed at the time of registering, existing patients can ask at any time who their named allocated GP is. Patients have the option to request a specific named GP (requests will be considered). However, we do NOT operate a 'personal list' operation at Chiltern House Medical Centre, this means patients can choose to see whichever doctor they prefer at the surgery for their care.

5. GP2GP transfers - GP2GP enables the Electronic Health Record (EHR) of a patient to be transferred securely and directly to a new practice when the patient registers at that practice. The EHR should be available at the new practice within 24 hours of the patient registering - but will normally be a lot quicker than this.
