Patients are registered with the Practice, not an individual GP. Your medical card will be issued in the name of one of the doctors who will supervise your care. However you can at any time express a preference for a practitioner, for either all of your medical needs or on a case by case basis. This preference will be recorded in your medical notes. Whilst the Practice will always try to comply with your requests on all occasions, it may not always be possible.
You may consult a doctor anywhere in the UK if you are away from home and in need of medical attention. You can do this by asking to see the nearest doctor as a temporary resident. Likewise, any of the Practice doctors will be pleased to see anyone staying with you upon the same basis
