Noticeboard

Named Accountable GP for All Patients

Every patient has been allocated a named GP who is responsible for your overall care at the practice. If you would like to know who your named GP is, please contact reception and they will be happy to inform you.

If you wish to change the name of your accountable GP, please let us know and we will make every  reasonable effort to accommodate this request.

Having a named accountable GP does not restrict your entitlement to see any doctor in the practice.

Infection Control Statement

Annual Infection Control Statement

We aim to keep the surgery clean and tidy, and to offer a safe environment for all our staff, patients and relatives.

If you have any concerns about cleanliness or infection control, please report these to our reception staff.

Our GPs and nursing team also follow procedures to make sure that treatment of our patients and the clinical equipment used meets infection control guidance.

In addition the practice takes the following measures to make sure we maintain the highest possible infection control standards:

  • Encourage staff and patients to raise any issues or report any incidents relating to cleanliness and infection control.  We can discuss these and identify improvements we can make to avoid any future problems.
  • Carry out an annual infection control risk assessment and regular audits to make sure our infection control procedures are working.
  • Provide annual staff updates and training on cleanliness and infection control
  • Review our policies and procedures to make sure they are adequate and meet national guidance.
  • Maintain the premises and equipment to a high standard within the available financial resources and ensure that all reasonable steps are taken to reduce or remove all infection risk.
  • Use washable or disposable materials for items such as couch rolls, modesty curtains, floor coverings, hand towels etc, and ensure that these are laundered, cleaned or changed frequently to minimise risk of infection.
  • Make Alcohol Hand Rub Gel available throughout the building


Our Infection Control representative at The Clays Practice is:
Allison King, Lead Practice Nurse
