Understanding General Practice, Michael Wright Local Medical Council
Following negative and damaging coverage about general practice in the media, our Chief Executive Michael Wright, has produced a video to help patients understand some of the unique challenges that practices face daily. You can access the video here if you wish to share it on your social platforms to help raise awareness and understanding amongst your patient populations.
The Institute of General Practice Management (IGPM) has also put a video together to raise awareness of the abuse that practice staff receive from patients. You can access their video here.

Named Accountable GP

From 1st April 2015, all Practices are required under the 2015-2016 General Medical Services Contract to allocate a named accountable GP to all patients registered with them, including children. The Named Accountable GP will have overall responsibility for co-ordinating the care and support Churchside Medical Practice provides to you. However, we would like to stress that this does not prevent you from seeing ANY GP or Nurse within the practice or that your Named Accountable GP is always available to you, but they are simply your appointed care-co-ordinator. If you wish to know the name of your accountable GP, please ask at receptionist when you are next in the surgery. Please do not telephone the practice for this information as it will congest the telephone lines making it difficult for patients to get through with health concerns.
