Dr Harris will be taking the next few months off work whilst she receives treatment for breast cancer. We hope to welcome Dr Harris back later on in the year after her treatment is complete.
If you are a patient of Dr Harris and need medical assistance whilst she is off, any of our other doctors will be able to help you and all have full access to your medical records.

Invite for Review
If you have a condition that need long term treatment, you will be invited from time to time for a ‘medication review’. This is to make sure that the treatment is working and is not causing any unwanted effects. There may be a need for tests at intervals as well. Many of these reviews can be done by our nursing team.

Named GP for All Patients
INFORMATION FOR PATIENTS
All practices are now required to provide their patients (including children) with the name of their named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that the surgery provides to them. This is an administrative exercise that will make no difference to the way you are cared for at the practice. Patients at Moreton Cross Group Practice have always been allocated a named GP on registration.
What does 'accountable' mean?
The new contract requires the named accountable GP to be responsible for the co-ordination of all appropriate services required under the contract and ensure they are delivered to each patient where required. However, this does not mean that they will be the only GP or clinician who will provide care to that patient. These responsibilities will be carried out within the opening hours of the Practice and do not change the way you currently access care outside these hours.
Will GP practices write to patients to inform them of their named GP?
No. However, practices are required to inform patients of their named GP at the next appropriate interaction.
Can patients choose their own named GP?
Patients will be allocated a named GP, however if a patient requests a different named GP, reasonable effort will be made to accommodate their preference.
Do patients have to see their named GP when they book an appointment?
No. Patients can, and should, feel free to choose to see any GP or nurse in the practice in line with current arrangements. If their preferred choice of GP or nurse is not available, an alternative will be offered. As all patients have an electronic medical record this ensures that all clinicians in the Practice have access to the most accurate and up to date information.
