Every patient has a Named GP
The Limehouse practice runs a personal list service, which means, as far as possible, we try to get patients to see their own named doctor. This improves the continuity of care (making sure someone knows all your problems and what medical conditions you have suffered from in the past).Some patients who have many complex health problems value seeing the same doctor who has a good knowledge of their previous medical history.
As most doctors at Limehouse don't have clinics every day it maybe difficult for you to see your own doctor sometimes. Your usual doctor works as part of a small clinical team with two/three other doctors, so you will be offered an appointment with one of the other doctors working in the same team as your named doctor.
