I have the following query which is returning duplicate results despite the fact I use DISTINCT

SELECT DISTINCT TOP 8
   Core_Accounts.ID,
   Core_Accounts.Username,
   NewID()
FROM
   PractitionerToPractitionerTypeMap
   JOIN Core_Accounts ON PractitionerToPractitionerTypeMap.AccountID = Core_Accounts.ID  
   JOIN PractitionerTypeToTabTypeMap ON PractitionerTypeToTabTypeMap.PractitionerTypeID = PractitionerToPractitionerTypeMap.PractitionerTypeID
WHERE
   PractitionerTypeToTabTypeMap.TabTypeID = 3
ORDER BY
   NewID()

Any help would be appreciated. If it is not obvious I can provide more details if needed.
