All patients registered at the Dr Shimmins and partners have a named, accountable GP.
The named accountable GP will take responsibility for the patient. This does not change the way in which we operate or affect your ability to make an appointment or speak with any of the GPs in the practice.
Should you express a wish to change your named GP we will do our best to accommodate your wishes.
Please feel free to contact the Reception Team on 01322 421480 to find out who your Named Accountable GP is.
The Practice is registered under the Data Protection Act and we are required to maintain confidentiality at all times. Information is held both on a paper file and on computer. We hold this information in order to provide good continuity of care to you. The information may also be used for audit purposes in order to monitor quality standards, but this is done anonymously.
Zero Tolerance Policy
In accordance with the NHS Zero Tolerance policy, physical or verbal abuse to any member of our staff will not be tolerated. If a patient does behave in this manner to any member of staff or another patient within the practice they will be immediately removed from our patient list.
