Patients are registered with the Practice, not an individual GP, you will be allocated a Named GP 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.
These provide access to Repeat Prescriptions, Appointment booking and cancellation, and Medical Records.

It cannot be done over the phone or my a family member on your behalf. You will be asked to complete a form (Registration Form) and a leaflet explaining your responsibilities to care for your information(Information Leaflet).
Each application for access to records will be looked and approved individually, on the rare occasion where the GP is concerned that access may be harmful to a patient this will be discussed with the individual.
