Named GP - Important Update

Named GP

At the end of September 2018 Dr Puvi will no longer be working at The Forge Surgery and has taken a position with another practice.  All patients who previous had Dr Puvi as their named GP will now be have Dr Karunaharan as their named GP.



What this means for you?

All appointments can only be made with your assigned doctor.


If you would like to see a different doctor, please let the receptionist know and we can accommodate if necessary.


In the case of an emergency, the surgery will accommodate and you will be seen by the duty doctor.



Why assign doctors to patients?

This policy was introduced to improve the continuity of care for our patients. As a patient, seeing the same doctor builds a good relationship. It also means that the doctor has a better understanding of your medical history and personal needs, leading to easier consultations and smooth running of the practice. Please cooperate with our receptionist.
