I've never had a GP as such. People in Mail/tabloidworld and on the telly seem to have one. In my experience, you book an appointment at the doctor's surgery or medical centre and see whoever is available on the day. The GP seeing you accesses your info on the computer, and pre-computer they would have been given your paper files by reception/admin in anticipation of your visit. I suppose you could see the same GP if you asked but this may delay your appointment if he or she isn't in.
