Clifton Road Surgery will be closed from 12.30pm on Thursday 10th October for protected learning time.

Clifton Road Surgery would like to announce the arrival of our new Salaried GP, Dr Gower.  Dr Gower started as our salaried GP in August 2019 and holds clinics all day Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.  With this in mind we wanted to remind you that every patient has a named GP.  Now Dr Gower is in place it has been necessary to allocate him as named GP to some of our patients.  Please note, anyone concerned or wanting clarification of their named GP can speak to Reception.  Please be assured those patients we will be changing will not be having regular on-going appointments/care.  If any patient has objections we will, of course, put you back to your previous GP.  We have consulted with our PPG who support the Practice in undertaking this.

Referral Choice

If you are referred for your first outpatient appointment then in most cases you have the right to choose which hospital in England to go to. This will include many private and NHS hospitals that provide services to the NHS.

You are also able to choose which consultant-led team will be in charge of your treatment, as long as that team provides the treatment you require.

Therefore, if you wish to be treated by a particular consultant for a procedure, you can choose to have your first outpatient appointment at the hospital where the consultant works, and to be treated by that consultant's team – but this doesn't necessarily mean you'll be seen by the consultant themselves.

This choice is a legal right, if you are not offered a choice at the point of referral, ask your doctor why and say that you wish to go through your options. If you are still not offered, or refused, a choice, contact your local Clinical Commission Group.
