Sharing Information with Local Emergency / Urgent Care Departments
We are planning on sharing health information with the Emergency / Urgent Care Department at Wythenshawe Hopsital. This will mean that if you attend the department that the staff working there will be able to better meet your needs. They will ask for your consent to do this at the time.
If you do not wish us to share your information please contact us.

Named Accountable GP
All our patients have now been allocated a named accountable GP. In most circumstances this will be the GP you registered with. The staff will inform you who your named GP is the next time you attend the surgery. If you would prefer to change your named GP please just ask a member of the admin team to change this for you to your preferred choice.
Please note that whilst you have a named accountable GP you still have the ability to choose any of the GP's when making an appointment, the staff will offer you either the next available appointment or the next available appointment with your choosen GP.
