Named GP for All Patients

Click to view

From the 1st of April 2015, all Practices were required, under the terms of the latest GP contract, to allocate all patients (including children) a named accountable GP who is responsible for patients overall care at the Practice and who will take lead responsibility for the coordination of all services required under the contract.

Your Registered GP will become your Named Accountable GP.

If you do not already know who this is, please ask during your next consultation or at reception.

Having a Named GP does not prevent you seeing any other doctor in the Practice. Your Named GP will not be available at all times and if your needs are urgent, you may need to discuss them with an alternative doctor.

Please note: there is no need to telephone the Practice for this information. If you wish to change your Named Accountable GP, please inform us and we will make every effort to accommodate your request.
