All patients at our practice have been allocated a named, accountable GP who has overall responsibility for their care. If you would like to know which GP this is for you, please ask at Reception.

General Practitioners or family doctors as they were previously called have been described as the backbone of the UK's NHS. When health issues arise they usually are the first person a patient wants to see or at least speak to. When the issue is serious patients expect a high level of personal interest in their case and circumstances and access to the GP services and support they need.
General Practitioners including those at Prospect Road Surgery are highly qualified and undergo rigorous assessment before they can take up this role. They are also human with families to support, interests other than their work and sometimes their own health issues to contend with. It is being human that allows them to genuinely sympathise with patient's circumstances and frequently with they had magical powers to make it all better. They may wish to be miracle workers but they know the reality of caring for patients is rather different. Within the constraints of NHS budget, stretched hospital and social care resources, current medical knowledge and the limitations of being human they are dedicated to doing the best they can for every patient.
Our GP partners are committed to:
- Responding to patients individual needs
- Seeking the best care available for their patients
- Striving to ensure patients are treated with dignity, equality and respect
- Improving the practice and performance of the surgery whenever it is possible to do so
As well as our GP's we have other Doctors who do locum sessions at the surgery and we are also a teaching partner with Hull York Medical School (HYMS) and sometimes have medical students on placement with us.

Our Clinical Practitioners play a very important role in the Practice and their knowledge and skills complement those of our doctors. An appointment with a clinical practitioner should never be viewed as getting second best or an inadequate substitute for a GP appointment. Clinical practitioners are professionally qualified clinicians who in addition to their general nursing qualifications have undertaken training to be able to independently diagnose and treat a wide rang of illnesses in both children and adults. Their qualifications allow them to prescribe many medications and undertake the care of those with many common and chronic medical conditions. With a national shortage of GP's in the UK, clinical practitioners are playing an increasingly important role in most practices. They are providing patients with access to high quality, timely diagnostics and treatment and deserve the respect and recognition of patients in a new model of individual health care.
