Named accountable GP

It is now a contractual requirement that all patients, including children, have a named accountable GP. Dr. Guilding's Surgery is a single-handed practice and all patients are registered with him therefore he will be your named accountable GP.  Dr. Millais will continue to work at the practice and patients may request appointments with her in the same way as before.

Patient Participation Group

The Practice is keen to develop a PPG ( Patient Participation Group) for the purpose of obtaining the views of our patients and enabling the practice to obtain feedback from the our patients on the services we deliver. If you would like to be involved in this process please visit the ' Have your say' page of this web site and complete a registration form or ask at reception for a paper copy to complete.
